Nathaniel came home last week and told me that none of the grades are getting recess anymore, not even K.

Oh my goodness, Rebekah! I couldn't imagine this. Kids must have time to let loose and not be structured. PE is NOT the same, because it is still a place where they have to listen to instruction and to what the teacher wants them too. UGH. It would burn my butt too! I hope that your email will get through to the principal. I'm glad that other parents do not support this. Sometimes people in high places come up with hair-brained ideas that might work in theory, but will never work IRL. Maybe, if they go through with the decision, start a petition. I'm sure you will have pages of signatures to present to the school board. Just a suggestion. I really hope they don't go through with it.
