As you know Addie is in Second Grade like yourself. School hours are from 8:10 a.m. - 2:50 p.m. The school provides transportation to school by big yellow buses. Addie gets on the school bus at 7a.m. and gets back off the bus at 3:50. (We live out of town, making the bus ride necessary) This makes for a long day.
Today Addie's schedule looks something like this Reading 8:35, P.E. 9:50, Music 10:15, Math 10:40, Recess 11:30, Lunch 11:55, Calender/Sharing 12:20, Tech or Art 12:45, Social Studies 1:10, AR or Math 2:00, Dismissal 2:50

Addie has P.E. every day for 25 minutes
As I was leaving I smelled something yummy
It was coming from the Cafeteria
also known as the Lunch Room
On the menu yesterday was:
Chicken Soup with Cheese Stick
If they don't like the scheduled menu
item they may bring a "cold lunch"
Before the kids go to lunch they have Recess.
This is 25 minutes of outside time.
They play outside unless it is below zero, or raining.

They switched recess and lunch around several
years ago so that children weren't rushing lunch to get outside.
It works very well to have recess first
