We are excited to share some big news. This year, we are bringing a “program of play” to our school through the Playworks TeamUp program!
We are proud to partner with Playworks to make recess a fun, inclusive time for every student in our community. Playworks is the leading national nonprofit using play to transform schools. A Playworks recess creates a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills. You can learn more at www.playworks.org.
A Playworks site coordinator will be working with us to create a safe, inclusive, and fun recess for all students at our school. The site coordinator will spend one week out of every month at our school to train, build and sustain a high-functioning recess. Our recess team staff will implement these new strategies to help all students at our school experience safe and healthy play every day.
