Recess Academy

Recess Academy is becoming an annual event at Matthew Thornton School. The 3rd Annual Recess Academy was held on Thursday, October 13th and over 30 LHS student athletes spent the afternoon working with each grade-level of students in an extended recess in order to teach them the Recess Game rules and what it means to be a good sport. The students had a blast going from station to station, while learning so much from the older students in Londonderry, who are great role models. We see our students applying the rules they were taught during Recess Academy each day while playing outside.  Many thanks to Crystal Rich, the LHS athletes and the Guidance and PE Departments at MT for their hard work in making this day such a huge success. Many thanks as well to our parent volunteers who assisted throughout the afternoon; we couldn’t do it without you.
