Fuel Up to Play 60 Week

Here at Mary McPherson, we run Fuel up to Play 60 activities all year long; however, we make one week an extra special week! Fuel up to Play Week! We have announcements, dress up days, a longer time for kids to walk each day, Maggie Moo comes to visit, a Finish Campaign for Milk, a poster contest and FUTP 60 prize give-aways. It's a blast all week! We raise awareness for kids, staff and the community to choose healthy foods and be active at least 60 minutes everyday.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Student Council works as our Fuel up to Play 60 team. Our advisors for Fuel Up to Play 60, student council advisor, and our lead nutritionist all worked together to create the activities for the week.

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

This play lasts all year because we run out "Wildcat Walkers" program all year long, everyday. Our lunch room is decorated as well, with pictures of healthy foods and active kids.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Kids are excited about Fuel up to Play 60! Students know the importance of eating healthy and being active, not just while they are in school, but for a lifetime.
