To a Re-Start of Recess

The third grade students had approached the administrators about bringing football back to recess, so they met and developed three rules. We bought a whistle and then used a new football. Today was "Wear Your Favorite Jersey Day" and so the whole school staff and students were ready for a Re-Start.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Having teachers out for recess instead of paras has decreased our behavior issues and improved our playing time.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The teachers and the students work hard to develop strong relationships that are trustworthy, and this is helpful when creating a team.
