Norton Elementary Students Fuel Up Their Community

The FUTP 60 representatives at Norton Elementary planned a Kickoff to get the school excited about being a part of the FUTP 60 program. Students talked about the four programs Norton would be implementing throughout the school year: Mileage Club, Tasty Tuesdays, the School Garden, and Breakfast in the Classroom. Our six representatives worked together during their lunch time to discuss and decide what they would present to the student body on each of the topics and how they could explain the importance of fueling up their bodies so that they could succeed in school and have the energy to play for at least 60 minutes a day. After introducing the school to the concepts of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, the representatives taught the school the secret farmer handshake they learned on Rally Day. All students then participated in practicing the handshake with friends and staff.

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

Once a month the student representatives will lead an assembly by introducing ways for students to stay active and eat healthy. They may lead in some brain breaks or discuss other ways to fuel up in order to play 60.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The student representatives met with the Program Advisor during their lunch period multiple times to plan the Kickoff event.
