The Coon Valley Elementary School (CVES) fourth-grade class, along with advisers Stephanie Fencl and Erica Storandt, participated in Fuel Up to Play 60, a Milk Marketing Board program designed to make CVES a healthier place kids. Students were challenged to get active, eat healthy, and make a difference through the FUTP60 program.

Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP60) is sponsored by the National Dairy Council and the National Football League (NFL) and invites students to get involved in creating a healthier school environment by getting 60 minutes of physical activity every day, choosing more nutritious foods, and encouraging others to join them.

The program kicked off on Oct. 27, and students of all ages learned about the FUTP60 program, participated in some fun football-themed challenges and got to hear about upcoming school-wide challenges. The challenges allowed students the opportunity to get healthy and win cool prizes, including Green Bay Packer football tickets, at the same time.

Students Clayton Christianson, Harper Semke, Aurora Gricius and Nate Frydenlund won Gren Bay Packer tickets. They spent the day at Lambeau Field on Sunday, Dec.3.

CVES was one of six schools in the state to attend this once-in-a-lifetime event. Students were announced on the field before the game, ran through the players’ tunnel, enjoyed the game from the Festival MVP deck, and experienced a Packer win as icing on the cake.
