Our FUTP 60 Student Leadership team makes short work-out videos that are shown every Workout Wednesday on the morning announcements. These videos get the entire school up and moving early! They also serve as an amazing platform to teach students about other healthy habits and the FUTP 60 program!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our Student Leadership team brainstormed which Play they felt our school would benefit from most and presented their idea for Workout Wednesday to both our admin and the Dolphin Daybreak (morning announcements) team and advisor.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We set up a FlipGrid so all of the videos are kept in one place. We meet weekly during their PE/recess time and bi-weekly after school, so students can record their videos.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our students and staff are always ready for a new Workout Wednesday video and get excited to follow their friends! We've also seen a big jump in the number of students asking about how they can Fuel Up to Play 60!
