• Ashley Pence Hello, I’m Ashley Pence, your new recess coordinator. You may have spotted me outside setting up games and playing with the students. My goals for recess are to have a fun and safe environment with a variety of options for our students at all age levels. I will be introducing weekly games! There will be a link below to show your students in class the right way to play before recess.



    Weekly Game: Switch (Four Square Courts)


    Switch | Playworks

    How to Play. Five players at a time. Each player occupies a corner or the middle. Play begins when the person in the middle says “Switch”. All players must find a new corner/cone to occupy.


    The goal of this game is to start to develop active listening skills and to have fun! Also please remind students to use rock-paper-scissors if they arrive at the corner at the same time. If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to email me @ pencea@hsd.k12.or.us
