Student-driven success

Student Leadership

Our Fuel Up to Play 60 program was completely promoted through student-led efforts. Our Student Wellness Delegate scheduled meetings with teachers and administration, wrote scripts for presentations, and presented information to their peers about how to join and be an active participant in Fuel Up to Play 60. Our student leaders collected student feedback, designed posters, and are responsible for the growth of the program at River Bend.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our goal as adult leaders was to give control over the program to our Student Wellness Delegate team. They attended staff wellness meetings, proposed ideas in conjunction with our staff committee, as well as taking charge in promoting Fuel Up to Play 60 around our school. Our program goal was to be student-led, adult assisted, and our team of student delegates took charge of their responsibilities.
