No More Sitting Around

Our students set out to get kids off their phones! Each day students have one 20 minute break time either outside or in the gym! We used our funds to purchase all kinds of active toys - jump ropes, hula hoops, balls, skip its, frisbees, etc. The kids LOVE it. For being a middle school, we couldn't believe how well the items were received.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Kids are much more willing to get up and MOVE during recess with new equipment. They are excited to get outside first to claim their item to use and kids are not using their phones as much as recess, their only break of the day!
