Ashland Ranch Elementary in Gilbert is Fueling Minds During Testing Week

Fuel Up to Play 60 program advisor and PE teacher, Meredith Brook, is a true champion of creating a healthy school environment. Meredith’s efforts are a perfect example of how Fuel Up to Play 60 not only fits into, but enhances everything teachers already do at their schools, even testing! Thanks to the grant funding she received through participating in this in-school wellness program, collaborating with food service staff and a little creativity, Meredith was able to provide healthy snacks for students during testing week. Ms. Brook sent an email out to all teachers including a link to a survey to vote for their snack preferences:

“Fuel Up to Play 60 would love to fuel up your students with a Snack Smarter Snack Bag for testing. During a day of testing we’ll have a snack bag ready for you to pickup to take back to class to fuel minds.

Please take a quick class survey and tell us what your students would like. The top choice will be revealed the testing day you collect your snack bag. We could really use the response today so we can get the food order placed. We’re hoping to deliver sometime after the 1st week of testing. Thanks for your help and best wishes on the test!

From,
Team Active Ashland”

The school food service ordered the food items and the Fuel Up to Play 60 student team assembled the bags for teachers to pick up on their day of choice. Teamwork at its best, fueling healthy minds!
