We are very excited to roll out our new Physical Activity Time (Recess) format and get out and play on our new artificial turf field. Cotswold received a grant that provides us with recess equipment and teacher training to implement “Playworks”. Each day, students can choose to play 4-square, Basketball, Soccer, Jump Ropes, go to the “Chill Zone” (playground equipment), or they can play in the “Game of the Week”. Laughing, cheering, hi-fives, and music will fill the playground rather than arguing or other typical playground problems. It will take a week or two for students to learn the games and get used to the new format, but once the system is in place, children will have plenty of activity choices and will be able to play with friends from different classes. Feel free to contact your child’s teacher or Mr. Clutts (PE Teacher) if you have any questions.
