This year for our Kickoff, we decided to pull in our Farm to School Play. We worked with our student nutrition services and our district chef to come up with a kale/strawberry smoothie and a garden vegetable salad. They then served this during our lunches as a taste test of this year's garden. During our lunches, our FUTP 60 Ambassadors were at a FUTP 60 table sharing our school successes, this year's Plays, our team, encouraging others to be active for 60 minutes each day and eating healthy, and asking others to join our team.
We also got our community involved with the National Guard. They brought out their rock climbing wall and were able to allow students to face their fears, challenge the students by time/skill level or challenge each other on the wall. Our Kickoff highlighted all aspects of FUTP 60 with nutrition, dairy, and fitness and was student-led. It was a huge success.
