FUTP 60 Kickoff Event at Copernicus
The students at Nicolaus Copernicus School - PS #25 in Jersey City, NJ participated in a huge kick-off event in October. The students worked together to complete various activities in the gym. They did a football toss, a relay race, an obstacle course and partner throwing, all while wearing their favorite football jersey! The students watched the Fuel Up to Play 60 Kick Off video and then shared ideas on how to be healthy, which were hung around the gym on little footballs. The school has carried on teaching about healthy lifestyles with many different opportunities during the school year. The students participated in the Jump Rope for Heart program and raised nearly $2,000 for the American Heart Association. We are committed to teaching our students about living a healthy lifestyle!

How did you accomplish your goals?

We introduced students to our initiative for the year. They were able to share their ideas on what it means to be healthy and were participating in events that endorsed health and wellness.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The students and teachers are making healthy choices when they are presented. The students are excited about school and more excited about gym class.

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

We will continue to educate our students and provide them with experiences that nurture their sense of health and wellness.
