More Recess at School for our kids!

River Eves Elementary School only give our children one recess a day for 15 minutes!
Holcomb Bridge Middle School only gives our children recess once a week!
To promote better health, mental wellbeing, and happier, socially well adjusted children, they need more time than 15 minutes a day to excercise, get vitamin D, and socialize with their friends. It is essential in the cause of getting children to listen and learn in class, to allow them to have multiple outlets daily where they can burn off their energy and socialize freely amongst their peers!
They are not allowed to speak in the hallways, they can barely speak at lunch time, they are required to sit quietly in their seats all day in class with only 15 minutes a day to let loose.
Its bad enough they only have PE once a week, so the least we can do is allow them to have longer recess or a second recess period everyday.
Even though the middle schoolers are older, there is no excuse for them to only see the light of day once a week. Everyone needs time in the fresh air and to exercise in order to properly focus. It is part of leading a balanced life. There is no reason our children should not have a chance to exercise, get vitamin D, and learn to socialize freely with their peers at least once a day.
Exercise and down time is just as important for education as are all other subjects. It has been pushed under the rug to promote more learning of technology. Unfortunately children will not digest what they are learning if they don't also have time to have fun and exercise as well.
