The Barton Hills Choir performed at a special “Fuel Up To Play 60” celebration at the school on September 14. Sixth graders performed “This Land Is Your Land” while second, third, and fourth graders led the audience in accompanying moves. Photos above were taken by Mark Matson.

The event was attended by AISD School Superintendent Meria Carstarphen, Mayor Lee Leffingwell, Representative Mark Strama, and additional dignitaries representing Texas dairy farmers, the USDA, and the University of Texas School of Public Health. Former NFL players Mike Rosenthal (Minnesota Vikings) and Dan Neil (Denver Broncos) also enjoyed the activities.

The event celebrated all schools in the “Fuel Up to Play 60” Active Play Project which addresses five of the eight Coordinated School Health requirements. Permanent playground stencils were painted on all 80 school campuses to encourage physical activity, nutrition education and curriculum integration. Dairy MAX awarded 80 Austin Independent School District Elementary Schools $4,000 each for a total of $320,000 for a district-wide implementation.

Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by the National Dairy Council, Dairy MAX and the National Football League in collaboration with United States Department of Agriculture.
