Rogers Middle School cheerleaders create video for national "FUTP 60 Challenge"

Two Rogers Middle School students "cheer" their way through a Fuel Up to Play 60 Touchdown Dance video.

Cheerleading is the exercise that two Rogers Middle School students, Reja Franklin and Maria Stoencheva, choose to participate in as part of healthy living.  Luckily for us, they put it to good use in the "FUTP Touchdown Challenge" last week.  Midwest Dairy challenged students to construct a video as part of the FUTP 60 program. One school will win a visit from an NFL player who will perform the "Touchdown Dance" for them in an assembly. 

I am very proud of the work that Reja and Maria have accomplished this summer in order for Rogers to participate in this challenge.  They are both ambassadors for Fuel Up to Play 60 and are two of the leaders of this program at RMS.  We are planning many more FUTP 60 events this year and I expect that these two young ladies will help organize and facilitate such events as taste testing, yoga, healthy after school "smoothies", and Wii Wednesdays.  As a school that has been part of the FUTP 60 family for three years, I am so excited and pleased to announce that we did receive another grant to help teach our students the importance of eating healthy and 60 minutes of daily activity. Please check out Reja and Maria's dance on the attached website and help us win the "Touchdown Dance Challenge".

I LOVE this dance!! I think we should all learn it at AHS football games and do it whenever we score!
