Jennie Wilson Elementary School will celebrate "Back to Football
Friday" from 1:15 to 3 p.m. Friday as part of the NFL's Fuel Up To Play
60 Initiative program. This will be the fourth year that the school has
participated in this program.
There will be five stations set up with pickup trucks representing
each grade. At each of the stations, the students will run an obstacle
course, do a beanbag toss and football throw and will discuss types of
healthy snacks. Students will be encouraged to sign a pledge to eat
better and be active at least 60 minutes each day.
Many activities will be held during the week to help teach students
about how to lead a healthy life through nutrition and physical
activity. The school's passion for the NFL and football will be on
display as staff and students show their NFL team pride for a chance to
win exciting prizes for the school through the program.
The NFL's Fuel Up To Play 60 Initiative program encourages kids to
get out and play at least 60 minutes each day. Schools nationwide are
encouraged to show their NFL team pride and submit three essays, with
100 words or less, along with three to six photos. The 34 winning
schools will be named NFL PLAY 60 Super Schools and receive a visit from
an NFL player and a $10,000 NFL PLAY 60 health and wellness grant.
