Physical Activity Participation

On Thursday, September 15th, members of the Fuel Up to Play 60 team helped the student council at the Hollidaysburg Area Junior High school host a dance for all students in grades 7-9. All students were encouraged to attend. The turnout was overwhelming! Many students that had never attended a prior dance due to disability attended that night. Money was charged for attendance as well as for snacks that included healthy option such as water and whole grain cookies. The money benefits student council and will be donated to a charity chosen by the student body at the end of the school year. We are very proud of our students' participation in this event!

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

Additional dances are planned for the upcoming months. The Fuel Up to Play 60 team will work with student council to promote the dances.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The dance was attended by more students and populations of students that had not attended prior to this year.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We accomplished our goal by promoting the dance within the school community, encouraging friends to attend, and attending the dance.
