Hermes/Intermediate Bulletin Board

Our Success Story is based on last year’s 2nd Annual Fuel Up to Play 60 bulletin board contest. Because of the bulletin board contest and the voting element, our school discussed daily in Physical Education class the objectives of Fuel Up to Play 60 (exercise 60 minutes daily and eat healthy). Students were required to go online and vote for our board. Also, our bulletin board was in a central location at the entrance of the school cafeteria. Students saw the board every day at school and the board created awareness of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program. Fortunately for our school we won 2nd place (3rd place overall) in the contest and received $500 in Physical Education equipment. Our school is very appreciative to Fuel Up to Play 60 and the knowledge that our students are gaining because of the program.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our school accomplished our goal by creating this bulletin board so it would attract the attention of all of our students. One important factor we considered was that the board needed to be in a good location. The bulletin board was placed by the cafeteria so students could see it daily. The board contained a variety of milk products and included a large cow so students knew where milk comes from.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and adults created the bulletin board together. Students were able to assist the teacher in the design. Students were also in the pictures on the board exercising and eating healthy.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Because of the bulletin board contest all of the students at Hermes/Intermediate know the program’s objectives. Our students look forward to the contest each year.
