Kickball on the playground

from Mike Simons:

I just wanted to clear up through the PTA list an issue that has some upper-grade students concerned:

Kickball is not banned from Fall Creek recess activities.

I was witnessing a lot of arguing during a kickball game that I was participating in last week. When I asked the children to explain the rules to me, there was a great deal of confusion, particularly about how to get an opponent out. Without getting into the specific details of the conflict, I said that I would check into the “pegging” rule, which I am still in the process of doing with our P.E. teacher, Carl Williamson and with other schools. We will then create a set of universal rules so that they are clear and understood by everyone.
