Rodburn Elementary hosted a Family Fun Night during Dr. Seuss Week and Read Across America. We highlighted Fuel Up to Play 60 activities, such as healthy snacks and physical activity with the families, along with the reading activities. The students and family members enjoyed the event. We mingled physical activity in with the reading and the kids really loved it. Reading and physical activity were both fun during our Family Night. And this is not always the case during the school day.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I feel that our students enjoy physical activity at school and at home. FUTP 60 has allowed us to raise awareness of the importance of healthy eating and in particular, starting your day with breakfast. We have more kids eating breakfast than ever before.
