The fourth grade students at Mullanphy ILC in St. Louis, MO, all wrote letters to the cafeteria staff in the building thanking them for all of their hard work and for providing healthy fruits and vegetables each day to promote a healthy lifestyle. Our Fuel Up to Play 60 team members came up with the idea of the letters, organized the event, and participated in the actual writing process with the other students.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students came up with the idea of writing letters to the cafeteria staff, and the Program Advisor and fourth grade teachers collaborated to form a template for the students to follow while writing their letters.
