Thirsty Thursday at Bonner Springs
We have "Thirsty Thursday" in our cafeteria twice a month. Our cafeteria serves different fruit-infused waters to get students to try new things and drink more water. They serve a variety like Strawberry mint, cucumber, lemon, blueberry, and many others. Kids really love it and they get stickers that say things like "Champion Taster" and "Drink More Water" if they try it.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our cafeteria and food service company offered to do this, and they prepare the water and supplies. Our Healthy Kids Crew serves the water, hands out stickers, and takes "Caught You Being Healthy" pictures.

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

This is our third year to have this program, and it has been very popular.
