- Let's Dance!
- Physical Activity Participation
All our students have 20 minutes of recess every day. The 20 minutes are in conjunction with lunch. Before or after lunch, students will have an opportunity to play on the outdoor playground or go to the gym and play soccer, basketball or gymnastics. However, this year we incorporated ballroom dancing into the recess time for our 5th graders. A dance instructor from Dancing Classrooms visited our school twice a week for ten weeks to teach our 5th grade students dances like the Tango, Fox Trot, and Rumba! Best part yet, there was a curriculum component attached to each dance lesson taught.
