Ready Set Test
This year, our school’s Fuel Up to Play 60 Ambassadors focused on finding a way to implement the FUTP 60 concepts of eating a healthy breakfast and physical fitness with academic challenges. Our Ambassadors teamed up and brainstormed ideas to implement a different approach to days that are assigned strictly to testing. The Aambassadors, along with the school’s program advisor, decided to request a breakfast that would give students the best nutrition during long testing hours; something warm with oats and fruits. Ambassadors also requested a school-wide morning walk, where students would walk through the campus halls and out around the blacktop before testing, to ensure students were mentally and physically ready for the exam. The concept of requesting a substantial breakfast and a morning walk has proven successful. Students feel that the warm breakfast helps during long testing hours and they look forward to the morning walk on testing days. Teachers and administrators encourage this new strategy and now help promote this new concept.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students meet every morning to discuss new ideas, different plays and enjoy some time being active. The group of students meets with teachers and the Program Advisor during this time to ask questions and brainstorm ideas.

How did you accomplish your goals?

A plan was devised and given to administration for approval. Student Ambassadors corrected any issue related to the changes.

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

Students plan to take surveys from both the teachers and students on whether there is a positive impact on implementing this plan.
