Garfield Heights Middle School Hosts Kick-Off Event for
Fuel Up to Play 60 Program

Garfield Heights Middle School hosted an energetic and informative lunchtime event to celebrate the launch of the Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP60) program on Thursday, December 06, 2018.  Fuel Up to Play 60 is a nationwide program launched by National Dairy Council and NFL, in collaboration with the USDA, to help encourage children to lead healthy lifestyles.  Several special guests were present at the event, including Cleveland Browns mascot Chomps, who helped to serve delicious bistro boxes and deliver high-fives and fist bumps to the delight of students.  Jan Diamond, School Wellness Manager for the American Dairy Association Mideast shared with students how the FUTP60 program can empower them to make strong decisions, specifically eating healthy, nutritious foods and engaging in sixty-minutes of physical activity every day.  Representatives from Pisanick Partners, the District’s food and nutrition advisors were on-hand to help students sign-up to become members of the FUTP60 School Wellness Team.  Over eighty students joined the Wellness Team which will provide them the opportunity to organize FUTP60 activities and promote healthy food options in their school!  To celebrate the excitement of the kick-off event, students and staff took selfies with Chomps which will become part of a mural located at the building.  The GHCS would like to thank the Cleveland Browns, American Dairy Association Mideast and Pisanick Partners for their participation and promoting healthy changes in our school and community!
