We used our blender that we received from the United Dairy to start Smoothie Fridays. During the week, the students poll other students asking what flavor of smoothie they would like to try. We meet on Wednesdays to come up with our grocery list. The students get to take turns helping make the smoothies and passing them out to other students. Then the students poll their classmates at lunch to find out what was the favorite smoothie.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Please view above statement.

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

We will continue to keep the students involved and having meetings to help them come up with new ideas.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We are finding that many of the students have never tried a smoothie and love them. We are planning to start sending home recipes to parents as well.
