Students Fuel Up to Play 60

Focus Areas:
Physical Activity During School
Community Involvement

Since 2009, students and teachers have led a charge to promote healthy lifestyles through the Fuel Up to Play 60 Program. In the classroom, teachers conduct “brain breaks” to energize and re-focus students throughout the day. After class gets out, students in the Ridge Fit Club try new activities, using pedometers and heart monitors to measure their progress. To cap off the active school experience, the Ridge Family Center recently transformed its annual open house into a Family Fitness Night, complete with student-led activity stations and prizes.
