New Class

The following picture depicts our 5th grade Students leading and teaching our 1st grade students in physical activities. The initial goal of this was related to our Fuel Up to Play 60 play for this year. My 5th grade students who are members of our volunteer wellness committee decided that this was the “play” they wanted to use for this year.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Teachers and Staff worked around the students' lunch schedules and core lessons to allow our Fuel Up Students to come in to teach the activities.

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

The Challenge we faced as a team (Fuel UP Members) was to come up with new interesting and engaging in-class activities for the students.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

As the team leader at our school I have seen other students inquire about being a member of Fuel UP to Play 60 next year!!!
