    Recess Before Lunch

    At Fairwood Explorer, students have recess before eating lunch. When recess is before lunch, students...

    • waste less food.
    • consume more food and nutrients.
    • behave better on the playground, in the cafeteria, and in the classroom.
    • eat at a more leisurely pace because the cafeteria atmosphere is more relaxed.
    • are more ready to learn upon returning to the classroom immediately after lunch, so less instructional time is lost.
    • perform better in the classroom because of increased nutrient intake and focused attention.

    Students play for the first 20 minutes of their lunchtime and then have time to eat afterward before returning to their classrooms.
