Changes to Lunch/ Recess 7 and 8 Grade

posted Nov 7, 2014, 12:42 PM by atarkinson@newvisioncharterschool.org
Beginning Monday, November 10th, New Vision will be implementing recess BEFORE lunch for grades 2-8, a national movement which, according to several studies, yields great benefits. Schools that have adopted recess BEFORE lunch report students eat more of their lunch and therefore cafeteria waste is reduced drastically. In addition, through consuming more food, students increase their consumption of nutrients from healthy foods (fruits, vegetables, milk) that contain important vitamins as well as calcium; nutrients that help them to focus in the classroom.

The 7/8 grade recess/lunch time is as follows:  12:30-12:45 Recess and Lunch 12:45-1:10

We are also asking that 7th and 8th grade students bring a good, substantial snack to eat during the morning during advisory since they will now be having lunch at a later time.  Thank you!
