Fuel Up to Play

The National Dairy Council and the National Football League, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, are promoting a school-based nutrition and fitness initiative called Fuel up to Play 60. The program gets students involved in the leadership of creating a healthier school environment that promotes student health, learning, and achievement. Students will pledge to choose more nutritious foods (including fruits, vegetables, and whole grains), get 60 minutes of physical activity every day, and encourage peers and family to do the same!

Your student will have the opportunity to participate in various activities through Fuel Up To Play 60 at Columbian Elementary this year. Your student will need to provide a parent's email address to get parent's permission to complete the registration.
