FUTP 60 Students Organize Activities for Knight Time

We have a 30-minute intervention block during our school day that we refer to as Knight Time. This time is used by students to get caught up on their work or receive some extra help in classes that they are struggling in. Students that have all of their work turned in for all of their classes can earn time in the gym doing a variety of physical activities. We have put our FUTP 60 kids in charge of organizing and running these activities. One of our latest activities was a Knock Out tournament.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

I served as a mentor to help the FUTP 60 students come up with a variety of activities and supplied them with the equipment they needed.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Our first couple of sessions simply had too many students in them, so we set up a calendar to limit the number of students that can participate each day.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The FUTP 60 kids have done a great job being leaders and coming up with a wide variety of activities. Students are motivated to get work done and turned in so they can participate.
