Fuel Up to Play 60 Recess Mentors 2016
Strength Wars is inspired by Star Wars characters’ ability to combat bad with good. Milk Skywalker, Princess Wheya, Omega-1 Kenobi, Vitamin C-3PO, R2-B2, Chewbrocca, Han Soyo, & Master Yoga have teamed up with Healthy Huskies to combat the Evil Empire led by Darth Soda & his Sugar Troopers. The Healthy Husky Jedis (FUTP60 Student Team) are led by their FUTP60 Advisor as they run laps, jump rope, play recess games, complete brain building exercises, ride bikes, eat healthy foods and garden. They mentor the Padwan Huskies (1st & 2nd Graders) to Fuel Up to Play 60!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We are excited that our 4th and 5th Grade Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Team members mentor our primary students during recess. They focus on developing healthy habits, and this has resulted in increased activity and fun for all! We noticed increased motivation and enthusiasm among students. Moving forward, the Student Team will continue to mentor our younger students and model active outside play. All students grades K-5 will benefit as we promote a healthy, active lifestyle.
