Student Planned Assembly

Fuel Up to Play 60Our school is part of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program (if you haven’t checked it out, you should – here’s the link: ).  As a kickoff to the new year’s activities, we held an assembly Friday afternoon.

Last spring, our school was selected to send a group of students and staff to Ford Field to learn about healthy eating and active living.  The students were thrilled to be part of this day.

As part of the trip to Ford Field, we needed to hold a kick off event.  Our students decided to have an assembly and show the student body some of the drills they learned.  The group of six students met several times to discuss how they wanted the assembly to proceed.

They finally settled on:

As they began the assembly, I was so proud of all of them.  They worked as a team out there and helped each other.  It can be terrifying to speak in front of your peers, but they handled it like pros, even when the microphone quit working at one point.

This group will be planning other activities for the school as we continue through the year and I’m looking forward to seeing what they come up with!
