Osseo Seniors' Smoothie Success!

Osseo Senior High School held its trimester three sophomore retreat on April 15, 2016. Typically, the 10th graders all receive a snack consisting of a cookie and milk. Thanks to our student Fuel Up to Play 60 team, this trimester the 10th graders were all able to enjoy an Osseo orange fruit smoothie Popsicle! Our student team worked hard for several days to pour and freeze nearly 600 peach/pineapple & yogurt smoothies. Our student team distributed them during the retreat and it was a hit, especially since it was such a warm day in Minnesota! Big thanks to our student team for their hard work leading up to and during the event! Go Osseo! :)

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our student team worked together for several days leading up to the event to plan our smoothie flavor, mix and measure out 600 smoothies, and distribute them on the day of the event.

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

The biggest challenge was figuring out how we were going to quickly distribute smoothies. Our original plan was to serve the smoothies as a drink, which would have been difficult to execute given the need to quickly move nearly 600 students on to their next event. We overcame the challenge by being flexible and turning our smoothies into Popsicles!
