Fuel Up to Play 60


Fuel Up     Wicomico County has begun a special partnership with Fuel Up to Play 60. During the 2014-2015 school year, our school will be participating in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program. This program allows students and staff to work together to choose and implement changes within the school so that East Salisbury Elementary will “Fuel Up” on nutrient-rich food and “Play for 60” minutes each day. By doing this, the goal is to help everyone in the school make healthy decisions each day and then encourage friends and families to do the same!!!

     In preparation for next school year’s super exciting opportunities, I would like our students and their families to become familiar with the Fuel Up website and the student dashboard. Since Fuel Up to Play 60 is a county wide initiative, setting up an account and utilizing the station will also benefit the school you attend during the 2014-2015 school year.

     Please log on to http://students.fueluptoplay60.com/login/ and create an account for your child. If you have more than one child at ESE, please create an account for both children. Parents will need to check their email and confirm the Fuel Up account before logging onto the student dashboard. Once you have created the account and confirmed it through email, please log on and click on “my account”. Fill out the information including selecting your school as East Salisbury Elementary. Please take the time to explore the site. Students and families can learn about physical activity and nutrition. Games, nutrition and activity trackers, and more can be found by clicking on the many areas of the dashboard.

     As we move forward with the Fuel Up program, students will be asked to get more involved by acting as student ambassadors, participating in school events, and helping to promote physical activity and nutrition.

     As always, your support is appreciated! I am looking forward to the exciting new adventure.
