Recess Refresh at AMS

Recess Refresh — It's Not so Elementary!
Topics:
Physical Activity Participation,  Student Leadership
One of our Wellness Team student members competed in a contest and won $1000 to do a "Recess Refresh" at Allendale Middle School. He noticed many students not being active at recess and wanted to make recess more enjoyable for these students. He proposed getting a soccer net (so students can play soccer), a volleyball net (so students can play volleyball) and a large net to keep balls from going over the fence (a problem we have had for years). Our Principal and Maintenance team were 100% on board and the new equiptment has been purchased and will be assembled this summer. We can't wait for recess next year at AMS!

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

We invested in a quality soccer net and volleyball net (with help from our school funds) to make sure the equiptment would last for many years!
