Eddie's Hours

Eddie's Hours
Eddie's HoursEddie's Hours are non-academic enrichment activities planned by the teachers to help students’ mental health and provide a chance for a break.

Eddie's Hours are an “opportunity for kids to have a little fun, downtime, really a break from classes,” Principal Jerry Zander said. “It could be educational, but it wouldn’t go in the grade book.” Students can choose from a variety of activities ranging from taking a nature walk to playing board games.

The initiative was part of the research on the new schedule implemented this year. An hour will be set aside on 16 to 20 Thursdays during the school year for these activities; on some of those days the activity will be a liturgy, pep rally or speaker. The activities offered may change, and students can choose which one they want to attend each time.
