Smoothies are a great treat for school dances and after workout treats. The St. Patrick's Day Dance featured "green smoothies" as the nutritious snack for the evening. The students enjoyed lots of dancing and a refreshing smoothie. The NCHS football team kick-off Spring Practice with strawberry/banana smoothies in their red solo cups. The smaller serving cups were not acceptable for the football players! The players enjoyed smoothies following their 60 minutes of "Hunter Time". Now smoothies are the choice treat following football practice!

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

Students enjoy the opportunity to have more school dances, hosted by our FUTP 60 team. They like the healthy choice of snacks that we have available, including smoothies. We will continue this practice throughout this school year and years to come.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Creating excitement for the students and involving the students as leaders of the program led to our success.
