Dear Secondary Parents, 

Last year Mr. Lester, Mr. Grainger and I developed a new recess schedule to allow our secondary students more opportunity to engage in physical activity outside during lunchtime. At first only a handful of students took us up on the offer, but that has steadily increased to the extent we sometimes have up to half our students engaged in physical activity in the fresh air. One of the unintended benefits is many of our middle school students actively engaging with the kindergarten students during the lunch recess overlap. The looks of joy on both the younger and older students' faces is very heartwarming indeed, and is most definitely a contributing factor to the close community interactions we enjoy across FIS as a whole.
