Maia Kurti, Sydney Lieuw, & Patrick Kawulok, all from 5-410

My partners, Sydney, Patrick and I (Maia), interviewed Mr. Quintana on the PS 88 Recess Program. He explained to us that recess isn't new and that we have always had it, but not on a regular schedule. Mr. Quintana told us that recess takes place in the school yard, at lunch time, and provides lots of games and activities for the children.

The students can go out for recess any day, as long as the temperature is above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Should it be too cold, recess will take place indoors. Mr. Quintana told us that the person in charge of this program is Ms. Laurie Andrews, the Lead School Aide. Mr. Quintana also explained the benefits of this program. One of them is, of course, is exercise. He said that some students do not have the opportunity to run, play and exercise as much as they should. At recess they get a chance to do all of these things. He went on to tell us that recess has had other positive effects, like having less class incidents and having more parents involved as volunteers to watch over the children. Mr. Quintana concluded by telling us, “All in all, recess is very beneficial for students and teachers alike.” We agree!!
