Smoothie Election Day
- Erica Phelps, Robinson Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods, Student Leadership, Teamwork
Robinson Elementary has chosen a breakfast theme for the 2016-17 Fuel Up to Play 60 school year! A smoothie vote was held on Election Day 2016. The district food service director came up with two different recipes: cherry raspberry and blueberry peach (red and blue for election!). Teachers assisted the Fuel Up to Play 60 team in setting up electronic voting booths using our district i-pads. Fuel Up to Play 60 students served smoothie samples and assisted at voting booths. Cherry raspberry was the winner with 55.8% voting in their favorite. The entire school was involved in this project and the excitement has filtered through the entire community! It was a great example of collaboration from the food service director and staff to teachers, students, and administrators. We have worked hard over the 3 years that we have been a FUTP 60 school. The whole school gets excited about health and wellness because of it. Collaboration was essential to making this happen, especially communication with parents to staff to students to administrators.
