Kick-Off at Jefferson
- Brooke Hempton, Thomas Jefferson Elementary School
- Student Leadership
Each new school year the students of Jefferson Elementary take the Fuel Up to Play 60 Pledge to lead a healthy life. It becomes the mission statement for the physical education class, and every student signs the banner which hangs in the gym. Students are constantly reminded throughout the school day through announcements, posters, newsletters, events, classes about their pledge and what they can do to continue to lead a healthy lifestyle. Students share their knowledge at home so it can go beyond just the school day.
