Play, then eat
Unlike other School District 833 elementary schools, Cottage Grove sends kids out to recess for 20 minutes before lunch.
"They are so eager to get out and play," said Beth Sprouls, Cottage Grove Elementary School, playground monitor last Thursday on one of the only days to get above freezing so far this year. "But they do that even when it's really cold."
Sprouls, Amy Stanton and Tricia Back watch to see that all goes well on the playground.
