By Florence Unified School District

Circle Cross Ranch STEM Academy K-8 has achieved Touchdown Status!!!

Fuel Up To Play 60 is a school nutrition and exercise program launched by the National Dairy Council of Arizona and the NFL in collaboration with the USDA. To score a touchdown a school must have a program advisor. Program advisors must coach the Fuel UP To Play 60 Team so students get the most out of the program. The teams must complete six major steps to achieve this honor dealing with healthy eating and exercise.

Schools must increase awareness about healthy foods and increase access to Smart healthy snacks and nutritious foods. We at CCR just completed our Food taste testing for healthy snacks and were awarded “Touchdown Status”. Yay!!!

Thank you to the many teachers, CCR PTO, and student instructors that have helped make our school “Healthier”. Totally Awesome!!!
