Recess Returns to Tacoma



Twenty-nine thousand students are enjoying recess again in their elementary schools after the Tacoma School Board voted to reinstate it last week. The Board expressed their belief that kids need to exercise their bodies as well as their brains during the school day. Superintendent Art Jarvis made the recommendation to reinstate recess in all 37 elementary schools that previously made school site decisions on scheduling recess.
