  • Playground Sneak Peek

    Installation of Telra's new playground on the Matthews United Methodist Church campus has begun! As you know, Telra students will have FIVE days of P.E. Everything from the traditions of ancient Greece to modern research findings support the idea that honing the body, aside from its intrinsic health benefits, also facilitates learning. Research shows that physical activity improves speed and accuracy of cognitive tasks, the ability to focus attention, and of course long-term positive health outcomes.
