Play is FUNdamental to growth and learning - for all ages! Every dollar given to this #GivingTuesday Campaign will be devoted to PLAY. We are so floored by this success! Your gifts will fund so many needed improvements, games, and more in our PE and Athletic Department.
Currently, many schoolchildren are given less free time and fewer physical outlets at school; many school districts responded to the No Child Left Behind Act of 200137 by reducing time committed to recess, the creative arts, and even physical education in an effort to focus on reading and mathematics.38,39
But at Roycemore we know better.
For 105 years Roycemore's educational curriculum has always included physical education and playtime for all grades of school. Through Middle School, students have the opportunity for PE every day and also have recess periods. In the Upper School, where only one year of PE is required, you can find students playing ping pong with one another, dropping into the gym, and participating in many structured and unstructured times to PLAY.
Covid 19 has changed so much of this for us, and as we planned for 2020-2021 it was with the hope that we could stay outside as long as possible. And we will, but we need your help.
Enter Giving Tuesday!
This year for Giving Tuesday all gifts will be earmarked for a special wishlist constructed by our faculty and Athletic Director Both Long.
