RALLY FOR RECESS this spring to help kids learn for a lifetime

This petition had 158 supporters


 SUPPORT RECESS in the District, Maryland or Virginia! Sign the petition and then join us on Saturday, May 7th for the RALLY FOR RECESS event (10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at 660 K St. NE in Washington, DC).

Playworks is rallying for recess this spring so parents and educators can show support before school schedules are set for 2016-17. Too many area principals and superintendents are cutting down recess time to 15-20 minutes, once a day, in favor of more time in the classroom. 

Research shows that recess not only increases physical activity (which fires up the brain) but also bolsters social-emotional skills and prepares students to learn back in the classroom. Help us #SaveRecess!

Playworks will deliver your signatures to principals and superintendents by Friday, May 13th. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR SCHOOL and/or DISTRICT in your comments.

Showing your support today will influence recess decision-making for the next school year!
