Recess is an important part of the day and enjoyed by all children. Our campus wanted to maximize the playing time as well as give students the proper amount of time needed to finish their lunch meals. Our campus decided on Recess Before Lunch!!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Cavazos Elementary initiated FUTP60 for the 2015-2016 school year to help our campus educate our students and staff the importance of nutrition as well as physical activity. Our school has shown improvements in the areas of nutrition and physical activity.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Recess and nutrition improved as a result of working together to maximize time spent on each. Our campus moved the Recess period before the student goes to the cafeteria for lunch. We noticed that many more students came into the cafeteria ready to eat and drink more milk and water. We noticed more food being eaten instead of thrown away.

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

Our entire school year worked well. Many students prefer having Recess before Lunch because they don't have to worry about playing with a full stomach. We plan to continue this process next year and beyond
