Fun Friday - Be There or Be Square!

48 minutes. That's a long time for lunch, even for students who are phone addicts! What better way to get students off their phones and on their feet than offering Four Square? On Friday, November 6, two courts were placed on the floor and 30-40 kids per lunch period rotated in to play Four Square! That's over 120 kids! Students had so much fun playing during lunch that they requested another opportunity to play Four Square on the next Friday. So, on Friday, November 13, we played again. This time, we had even more participation! Teachers and staff joined in too! Our students are now looking forward to Fun Fridays and being active.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We plan to continue offering Fun Fridays throughout the year. We will offer a variety of activities, such as Four Square, Bean Bags, Ping-Pong, etc.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

In the last two weeks, we have seen more student and staff involvement in physical activity. Students are working together, moving, and putting away their phones during Fun Fridays!
