Physical Activity Participation
Over 200 kids and staff participated in this year's Fun Run. The weather was a little chilly, but everyone had a great time. After the Fun Run, everyone came into the cafeteria for frozen strawberry smoothies, apples, peanut butter sandwiches and milk.

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

This is a yearly event at school. In the past 2 years, we added milk and apples as snacks and this year incorporated the smoothies which I plan to keep as part of the tradition.

How did you accomplish your goals?

By highlighting milk and smoothies as my after activity choices, almost all kids took them and many kids who are not school breakfast eaters were able to try the smoothies.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

With milk as part of our after school supper/snack program, more kids are drinking milk all throughout the days meals.
