Beginning the 2019-20 school year, all students at South Lakewood Elementary will have two recess periods daily. The total daily recess time will be 35 minutes. This change reflects the Jeffco Recess Guidelines and supports the learning and health of our students.


The research strongly shows that students who are active learn better.  Recess benefits students by:

Increasing their level of physical activity.

Improving their memory, attention, and concentration

Helping them stay on-task in the classroom.

Reducing disruptive behavior in the classroom

Improving their social and emotional development (e.g., learning how to share, cooperate and problem-solve.)
