Why should you care?
As more and more elementary schools are cutting back on the amount of quality physical education time students receive, recess has increasingly become the means to supplement this lack of physical education students receive during the day. What administrators and classroom teachers often fail to understand is the importance of physical activity in the elementary setting. The fact is, physical education is highly important to the health and well-being of all children. A sound elementary physical education program can strongly promote students to be active and healthy throughout their lifetime.
