(Port Angeles) -- Two Port Angeles elementary schools have received thousands of dollars to run a healthy lifestyle program.

Hamilton and Jefferson elementary each received $3,900 from the Washington State Dairy Council. The grants will be used as part of the "Fuel Up To Play 60" program.

The program is aimed at students and their families to encourage healthy eating and physical activity.

Port Angeles School district PE teacher, Krista Winn, was responsible for procuring these grants. She expanded the nutrition and physical fitness aspects of the grant and created what she calls, "F.I.T.".

Winn will have her students concentrate on nutrition in April and on physical activity in May. Students will chart both nutrition and fitness accomplishments for themselves and their families.

More than 60% of the nation's private and public schools are currently enrolled in "Fuel Up to Play 60".
