We want children to have fun, play safely, and develop positive social interactions.
Adult recess supervisors are present when children are at recess. Their primary responsibility is to ensure the safety of the children. They also help to solve problems through positive interventions and through the use of appropriate discipline.
When children have small problems at recess, we teach them to use our Peaceful Playground strategies, one of which is Rock, Paper, Scissors.”
When the problems are too big or Rock, Paper, Scissors have not been successful, we teach children to seek adult help. We expect that games at recess will be inclusive, stress fair play, and that children will demonstrate good sportsmanship at all times. Children exhibiting “these traits are welcome to play at recess.
We will work to help children refine these skills through teaching in the classroom, during P.E., and at recess.
