At Grass Valley, we are fortunate to have a number of outdoor spaces which allow children to
move, run, exercise and play. Students have structured physical activities at least once a week,
run by Craig Colbert, affectionately know as "Coach." Coach Colbert teaches the children
playground games, sports, exercises and rules of fair play.
Our Healthy Recess program is based on the Playworks model, which our staff was trained in. As a part of this model, Junior Coaches, 4th & 5th grade leaders, come out at recess and help students learn even more active recess games where everyone is included.
