At Quaker Valley Middle School we do not call it recess - instead we call it Period X. Period X occurs the last 30 minutes of each day. It is a time for students to get involved in an activity of their choice. The FUTP 60 Team organized a series of physical activities for students to participate in. They selected the activities according to a student survey. What they came up with was a list of physical activity offerings for each quarter. First quarter the team promoted, organized, and implemented the "Capture the Flag" tournament during Period X. This quarter they are organizing a "speedball" tournament. This has been unbelievably successful.
