Canyon Elementary was privileged to host an assembly with Tre Flowers from the Seattle Seahawks. PE teacher, Amy Christmas, entered the "Fuel Up for 60" contest through Dairy West and won this opportunity. During the assembly, Tre Flowers talked about healthy habits and answered questions. Students and teachers participated in relay races. Canyon Elementary was named a Touchdown School.

Mrs. Christmas said, "We are really thankful to Dairy West, FUTP60 and the NFL because they have given us a really great framework for healthy eating, getting 60 minutes of play a day, and teaching kids how to be great leaders.  I have always wanted to teach habits of health and really spread the word about how important developing healthy habits. These habits can impact our whole life.  FUTP 60 has given me the resources to implement this at Canyon Elementary."

We appreciate Mrs. Christmas's diligence and hard work to earn this awesome and energetic assembly.
