La Farge Middle School Celebrates Healthy Dairy Options
Students at La Farge Middle School teamed up to put together another March Madness Smoothie Taste Test Challenge! This year, we had students vote on their favorite flavors for a chance to win a Morgan Burnett autographed football! We also combined our healthy eating play with a student incentive party where many of our middle school students got to participate in physical activity brain break during our first hour class time!

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

A major challenge of implementing this Play was to have appropriate time to meet as a FUTP 60 group. With some major schedule changes implemented at school this year, our usual meeting time was not possible. We had to sacrifice some time during lunch break to get together to make things happen.

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

The incentive physical activity brain break time is something that our Middle School teachers started this year to get kids motivated to meet their academic goals AND get in additonal physical activity time. We plan to work together to continue implementing this at the midway and end point of each quarter of school.
