Our school had a very successful Kickoff assembly. The students got together and made props that would help them explain to the rest of the school what exactly Fuel Up to Play 60 stands for. They were able to get the whole school to participate in a "brain break" doing "The Wobble" dance. We were able to talk about how the MyPlate nutritional information will help students have an understanding of making healthy food choices. Finally, we were able to end our assembly by promoting physical activity by having students compete in a relay race against the faculty. We finalized the whole thing by handing out magnets that have the Fuel Up to Play 60 logo on them.
