The following is a news release from Lubbock-Cooper ISD:
Lubbock-Cooper South Elementary will host its second annual Fuel Up to Play 60 kick-off pep rally at 8:15 a.m. on Friday, October 5 in the South Elementary gymnasium (16302 Loop 493).
During the pep rally, students will be introduced to this year’s Fuel Up to Play 60 campaign, an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by National Dairy Council, local Dairy Councils and the National Football League, in collaboration with United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The campaign goal is to help make wellness part of the “game plan” at school. Pep rally attendees will hear from various speakers about daily Fuel Up to Play challenges, a community service component, and more. Special guests include LCISD Athletic Director Max Kattwinkel and the Lubbock-Cooper High School Drum Line.
South Elementary has selected Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Ambassadors who are campus leaders championing student wellness in their school. They work with educators, administration, cafeteria staff, and other students to encourage healthy changes. These Ambassadors will help coordinate the pep rally.
The key to Fuel Up to Play 60’s success is having a strong student foundation, a team of committed educators, and community engagement.
***Visitors to the school must present government-issued identification in the front campus office in order to enter the building.
