Students Love Playworks! You Can Help!
Thanks to our partnership with Playworks, we have seen amazing changes and transformations in our students here at James E. Moss. We’d love to see that continue, but to do so, we’ll need your help to reach our donation goal!
Since bringing Playworks to our school three years ago, we have fewer behavioral problems. Physical fighting is now a rare occurrence and kids feel safer at school. This alone is worth having the program at our school, however, Playworks is more than that. Through this program, kids also learn to resolve conflicts using positive strategies like Ro Sham Bo (paper/rock/scissors) and other friendly games.
Playworks encourages inclusive and vigorous play with a wide range of games played at every recess. Our kids love these games and cannot wait to participate. Because of this, everyone plays and no one is left out. With greater participation, our students have improved mental and physical health. They’re finding friends and learning to work together in positive ways.
After recess, our students return to the classrooms ready to learn. We’ve seen that the transition from recess to classroom is faster with no lost learning time. Having played hard and enjoyed themselves, our kids are bringing that high, productive energy back into the classroom where they’re more engaged and eager to learn. In turn, this has led to greater learning retention.
Our students love this program, and we do to! Thanks to Playworks, we’ve seen many positive changes at James E. Moss. Help us keep this program at our school by donating now. Thank you!
