FUEL UP TO PLAY 60 NEWS

The National Dairy Council® (NDC) and the National Football League (NFL) — in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) — are making a long-term commitment to America’s youth with a school-based nutrition and fitness initiative called Fuel Up to Play 60. The initiative gets students involved in creating a healthier school environment that promotes student health, learning and achievement. Through Fuel Up to Play 60, students will pledge to choose more nutritious foods (including low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables and whole grains), get 60 minutes of physical activity every day, and encourage their friends, family and their entire school to join them — and have fun too!

Your child’s school is part of a select group from across the country participating in Fuel Up to Play 60.  This year our school’s Physical Activity Play is All in, All Abilities- Activate Your School and will engage and motivate all students to get physically active!  Our school’s Healthy Eating Play is Food:  Waste Less and Enjoy- It’s Good for All of Us and focuses on 3 ways to decrease food waste:  reduce, recover and recycle.  Students will be involved in these plays throughout the school year in Physical Education class! 

Students, with the help of adults at home are invited to be involved with our Fuel Up to Play 60 Program by using some tools at home.  Please learn more by clicking Parent-Information-Letter by scrolling below.
