We would like to share with you the good news that we have decided to partner with Playworks, a national non-profit, to ensure that we are doing our best to incorporate healthy inclusive play into our school day - every day, for every student. We have preparing our coaches, students, and staff for our kick-off on Monday, October 19th.
Games will be introduced to students which will allow students time to choose from the games taught or to have free choice of playground equipment and swings. There will be three primary areas of new games and ways to help students be safe, include others, and have a positive and healthy recess each day.
To read more about Playworks, research on play, and stories from playgrounds across the country, visit www.playworks.org. The video we showed students today through Essentials is found here:
