Kickoff to a New School Year
The kids started this year off with a Kickoff assembly. We had two Student Ambassadors attend the leadership summit in Minneapolis, MN this past July. The girls got in front of their entire middle school to share their story and promote FUTP 60 in our school. We played Hungry, Hungry Hippos, a plunger relay, and a running relay. The students did awesome and had a ton of fun while doing it.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The kids put all the script together. The advisor got the students in the program to speak. This was all the kids!!

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

We only had a short time to get this together since it was only our first full week of school. The kids buckled down and got right to what they needed to do.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have a lot of students asking to be in FUTP 60 and how to get in. I think we will more kids involved this year than all previous years combined.
