The Power Behind the Play
Topics:
Access to Healthy Foods, Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership,  Teamwork
Through the Fuel Up to Play 60 initiative and partnering with HYPE ( Healthy You, Positive Energy), a group of student leaders at our school have formed a club. They have been working on creating and implementing healthy recipes, playing a variety of sports and activities , and participating in yoga to promote health, fitness and nutrition. We also look forward to the opportunity of using grant money to improve our school both activity wise and nutritionally.

How did you accomplish your goals?

By using teamwork and open communication and debate techniques.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

By ultimately making decisions on what and how we would be healthy in our time together.

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

With this being my first year teaching, I plan on definitely participating in this wonderful program to a greater extent in years to come.
