7th Grade students in Mrs. LaPointe's Wellness 101 class have successfully implemented Fuel Up to Play 60 60 into STMA Middle School West! Using our 7th hour RTI time, we have joined, created a kickoff event, made posters and engaged in challenges and lessons making many ambassadors for our school. Our student leadership team helped to implement Fuel Up to Play 60 for the first time in our school. We are awaiting news on our grant to see if we can add more in-class activity breaks and a RobotCoupe to the kitchen for a taste test.

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

We faced a challenge of getting this information out to the students in our school. Many have seen the Fuel Up to Play 60 logo during the Vikings football games, but didn't know what it was about. Sharing this information school wide, students are getting more activity by playing the games, conducting the challenges and forming teams and completing mini lessons. If our grant is approved, this student leadership team will help run a taste test for farm to school!
