McLaughlin Middle school students enjoyed a fabulous Kickoff event on Tuesday, November 13th. They played Dance Dance Revolution and got to meet a local dairy farmer, Pat the Patriot and 2 of the New England Patriots cheerleaders. Some of the students were also selected for special interviews. They participated in a PEP RALLY ASSEMBLY where they got to play a milk bottle game and learn more about the FUTO 60  program and the Stand up desks from Ergotron.

How did you accomplish your goals?

The Health Club created a skit and speeches to perform at the assembly. We used the money we earned from becoming a VIP school to purchase prizes and incentives for our students. Our New England Dairy Council representative helped to make sure that we had enough prizes and supplies for our assembly and got in touch with media, Pat the Patriot, a Dairy Farmer and 2 Patriots cheerleaders. Students also volunteered to compete in a Dance Dance revolution competition.

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

It was difficult to plan the event but the students helped to determine prizes and planned the skit on their own. They also reached out to various people to see if they were interested in participating in our event.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students in the Health Club worked with the program advisor to help organize this event. Additional staff members helped the event by adding a short speech about how they are involved with the Fuel Up to Play 60 program.
