Walk or Bike to School Day with Smoothies

On May 3, 2016, we celebrated Walk/Bike to School Day. Parents were invited, the jazz band played, and we served sample size smoothies to all. Some smoothie cups had a sticker on the bottom, entitling that lucky winner to choose from a variety of FUTP 60 promotional items including FUTP 60 t-shirts.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students from the FUTP 60 team were servers at our event.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The food service for our district did not warm up to the idea of smoothies right away. Fortunately we have a very cooperative food service manager in our school and she worked hard to get the smoothies going.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have a few more students who come to breakfast now.
