Sparking into FUTP 60
- Marcus Neeson, Clay Springs Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods, Physical Activity Participation, Teamwork
Our Clay Springs students are excited about the Spark Curriculum that was purchased through our FUTP 60 grant that was awarded to our school. The easy to teach games, dances and skill progressions are a sure way to quickly engage our students and keep them moving during their Physical Education class. We have promoted FUTP 60 in each of our physical education classes, describing new activities in which the students can participate and distributed flyers to take home. The students seem to be excited about the program and are making a pledge to sign up to become more active at home and at school. Our cafeteria staff support our efforts by posting nutritional information on a daily basis, and advertising healthy foods through menus and posters.
