We started off our 2016 school year Fuel Up to Play 60 Program by having a school dance entitled “Rock Around Howe” Sock Hop. We had a DJ who played a variety of music and games that got us and kept us moving. We used the Blender Bike to serve healthy Yogurt Smoothies to promote healthy snacking and encourage physical activity. We served football shaped pretzels to promote our Green Bay Packers and decorated in green and gold colors. Our FUTP 60 team created posters to promote the dance and read announcements each morning to create momentum and excitement about the event. Many parents and staff got involved helping to decorate and serve the smoothies. FUTP 60 prizes were given to the winners of the game challenges and the line for the Blender Bike was continuous. There was great disappointment when the music stopped and it was time to go home.
