Illinois Success Stories
Flavored milk is a great option to help kids receive all the nutrients milk has to offer. But what happens when a group of students largely doesn’t accept flavored milk as an option alongside their lunchtime meal?
Staff and students at Anne M. Jeans Elementary School -- home to Illinois’s state student ambassador of the year, Angelique Livingston -- are making some major advancements in their second year of participation in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program.
Physical Education teacher Morgan Nichol and her team of program advisors at Timber Ridge Middle School wanted to make a huge splash for the school’s first-ever Fuel Up to Play 60 event. With some advice from another Fuel Up to Play 60 program advisor in her school district, and a little help from her highly motivated student body, she was able to do just that.
