Wellness Night

Our Fuel Up to Play 60 team hosted a wellness night for our community on February 10th from 5-7 pm. The night was packed full of activities to get kids active and moving! The students had a blast and it was a great way to get our families and community members involved.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our Fuel Up to Play 60 students played an active role in helping us organize and set up for the event. Our middle school and elementary school worked together as well. By collaborating with the middle school team, we were able to access more resources and make our night more successful than it would have been had we done it on our own.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We began planning back in December and had all of our session leaders determined prior to winter break. In the beginning of January, the advisors sat down and came up with a timeline of what we needed to accomplish before the event was held. Each of us took on different tasks, and together we put on a successful evening.

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

One of our biggest challenges was not knowing how many people to plan for. We sent out an early note to parents, asking if they planned on coming, but we know not everyone who attended had said they were coming. Of those who attended, not all participated in each activity. Another challenge for us was getting all areas of the building reserved. There were many sports teams who were practicing in our reserved areas which delayed our set up a little bit.
