Students Become "Captains" of Hillel

The Hillel Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Leadership Team has been hard at work planning a Kickoff, motivating their peers to sign up, taking charge of recess equipment, and sharing healthy eating tips. This program has provided our students with an opportunity to take a leadership role in educating others about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The leadership team is committed to meeting for a weekly, delegated task such as taking out and returning recess equipment, which ensures other students have an active recess. They split up the days of the week so that each student leader can read a healthy tip of the day. Our students have become role models for their peers. They are impacting students and teachers alike. I could not be more proud of their devotion and hard work. Go Hillel Hawks!

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

We have a regularly scheduled meeting that does not take away from recess time. Students know to meet weekly and have created a schedule to take care of our recess equipment and read the healthy tips of the day!

How did you accomplish your goals?

We have accomplished our goals thus far by hearing each other's thoughts and making decisions that will work best for our group. The students have not hesitated to jump in and find a job.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

I have an agenda each time we meet, which helps us to stay on task. I make sure the students are respectful and hear one another. I provide them with reasonable tasks and help to adjust any of their suggestions that may not be attainable.
