Smoothie Taste Testing

Students at Frontier Middle School worked to promote a smoothie taste testing event by making posters, doing morning announcements, creating a voting document and tallying the votes. They served sample smoothies to our entire student body. After sampling the smoothies, students voted on their top three flavors and will have the opportunity to enjoy them starting in March, as part of our School Breakfast program.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students worked with our Assistant Food Service Director, a local newspaper reporter and me to promote and implement this event.

How did you accomplish your goals?

This is my third year as a Program Advisor for Fuel Up to Play 60. I worked closely with the Washington State Dairy Council the first year I received funding for my school. They asked me if I would be willing to share my success with other teachers in my district. Now, all schools in my district have a Fuel Up to Play 60 Program Advisor and we were fortunate to receive district funding this year.

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

Thanks to our district funding, every school in our district has equipment to prepare smoothies and serve them as part of our school breakfast program. Due to this funding, we are ensured of sustainability.
