Sample Letter

Here is a Sample Letter....

I am writing to ask for your support of HB 159.  Children all over Texas are regularly being denied appropriate breaks.  Adults are protected with laws that make sure they get two 15-minute breaks each day; teachers are guaranteed a 45 minute planning period away from the students and a 30-minute duty free lunch.  There is no reason not to offer the same protections for our children.


While it is common sense that everyone needs breaks, there is also quite a lot of research which proves the need for recess.  It helps children relieve stress, and prepares them to be more efficient learners.  Research has proven that recess improves academic achievement.  On the flip side, there really is no research that supports withholding recess.  







Add in your personal story and any evidence you find interesting that recess is beneficial.
