Changes To Afternoon Recess Time To Afternoon Recess Time<p>​The colder weather is coming whether we want it or not. With the extra clothing, students tend to take a longer time to get prepared for learning after the recesses. In consultation with other schools who made changes in the past, we will be trying something new at Baxter Central for the<strong> afternoon break </strong><strong>only </strong>beginning in November. We will be flipping the nutrition and recess times in the afternoon to increase instructional time. Students will prepare to go outside from 1:10-1:30 and enter quickly back into the school at 1:30 for their 20 minute nutrition break. Teachers will then return to their classes with their students already at their seats prepared for the last block of instructional time. We are quite excited to see the benefits of this change.</p>
