Minnesota Department of Health Success with FUTP 60 and SHIP
- Lynn Nelson, Longfellow 45-15 Choice Elementary School
- Community Involvement
The Minnesota Department of Health posted a success story on their webpage about Longfellow in Rochester, MN. Our school, has a partnership with SHIP (Statewide Health Improvement Program) and FUTP 60 to bring fitness and healthy eating to our school. The SHIP grant got our garden started and it continues through the efforts of many in our school. The SHIP grant was also written to get our school bikes to ride during PE class. This was a join effort between Longfellow and Riverside. The FUTP 60 grant has provided farm tours.
