Due to budget and time constraints, mandatory recess was cut from our school building over the last few years. This year, the two fourth grade classes decided to dedicate a block of time during the day to taking the students outside for recess. Since the beginning of the year, discipline referrals have been down dramatically and grades are improving. Students complete homework without any issues and play great together.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

As teachers and program administrator, I play with the students each day during recess.

What improvements have you seen at your school?
