HIJH will participating in our 3rd Annual version of Global Play Day in connection with a choice Activity Day on Wednesday, February 5th.  Research is clear that today’s children do not experience the many benefits of ‘play’ that many years ago was just part of the American culture.  We would like to provide a day in which students not only have a block of time for collaborative play in a non-stressful environment, but also have an opportunity to choose three Activities from a list created and facilitated by teachers in three blocks of time throughout the day. In an age of standardized testing and intense academic competition, it’s easy to believe that play is one more thing American children will have to do without. But free play encourages the development of the two skills that no robot can replace: creativity and teamwork. Just as the most imaginative and innovative leaders in business and politics needed time away from work to come up with some of their best ideas, so do children need time to play on their own, away from organized lessons and screens and even adult direct intervention.  Below is a list of the Activities that will be offered to students.  We will have a common, electronic sign-up day on Wednesday, 1/15 using the SCHED program so all students have a fair opportunity to sign up for these activities at the same time.  Activities will be capped at 30 students.  We look forward to this unique opportunity for our students!
