Hi Good People of EVCS – In case you couldn’t be at the last PA meeting, here are the highlights – the full meeting minutes are posted on the school’s website.
Refugee Support Project announced.
PA will fund a New Recess Pilot Program to start after Spring Break!
The SLT (School Leadership Team) has been discussing the two connected subjects of how to increase physical activity of our students and how kids are experiencing and using their recess time. The SLT created a school-wide (K-5th) recess survey and a few members of the team observed different recess periods. According to the survey, most students enjoy recess, but there are 18-20% of the kids who for different reasons either don’t enjoy the time or are struggling to find something to do. The SLT proposed, as a pilot program, having “recess enhancement”. This basically is a physical education specialist on the playground during recess, 2 days a week, organizing voluntary games and activities for any student who wants to join in. The hope is that the kids who are more sedentary during recess will chose join and be more active and those who are feeling shut out or unable to join an activity, but want to, will be taught games and rules, thus perhaps opening a door for them to participate on other days.
The PA unanimously voted to fund the fees (estimated at $1800) for 12 weeks with the instructor and Bradley said the school budget will pay for any additional playground equipment needed. The program is set to start after spring break with former EVCS parent and track coach Aswad as the instructor!
We will soon announce whether the PA will need to do additional and separate fundraising to cover these instructor fees.
Hi EVCS Families,
