Soup-er Bowl Food Drive at Rusch
The Fuel Up to Play 60 team at Rusch and Lewiston Elementary School participated in a food drive to raise food for local food pantries. The students collected food items the two weeks before the Super Bowl. Students were able to select which team they thought would win between the 49ers and the Chiefs. The students collected over 400 items that were divided between two local food pantries. The students are looking forward to making this a yearly goal.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students and teachers select goals together to promote physical fitness and eating healthy and then the students go about promoting and implementing the plan. They ask for assistance when needed but accomplish a lot of the work on their own to grow the program.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The biggest goal this year is that my teaching schedule changed and I'm limited on my time to work with students. The students have done a great job taking on added responsibilities to set goals and work toward them on their own. They have been able to take on leadership with the projects we have done but it has limited us in the number of activities we have been able to do.
