In 2019, the ESE Foundation funded the installation of a turf field and the renovation of the surrounding area. East Side students are now able to play outside right after it rains in a safe and healthy environment. The CDC reports that benefits of physical activity in children include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Improving their memory, attention, and concentration.
- Helping them stay on-task in the classroom.
- Reducing disruptive behavior in the classroom.
- Improving their social and emotional development (e.g., learning how to share and negotiate).
