Revamped Recess
We revamped our recess program by having recess before we go to lunch. This may not seem like a big change, but it was. We found out that the students began to consume more of there healthy foods such as their milk, fruits and vegetables.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The challenge we had to overcome was the new system. People rarely like change and we were changing a system that had been in place for many years. Eventually everyone from the cafeteria staff to the principal was on board. The idea of having physical activity before lunch became a great Play for us!
