Let’s add a second recess period

April 18, 2013 

More recess is healthy

We would like the Fort Mill School District to consider having two recesses a day. We have a few reasons why we feel there should be more than one recess in a school day.

Having more exercise and energy will help our brain and body function better. Also, moving more outside will help us focus better in our classroom. Last, the more time we have outside to play with our friends, we will not be tempted to talk as much to our friends in class.

We wonder what other schools think of this idea?

Thank you for your time,
