This year Playworks will be here at Kyrene de la Mariposa Elementary. Playworks will bring a focus to the recess yard ensuring your students partake in safe and healthy play EVERY DAY. With this your kids will grow social and emotional skills allowing them to problem solve, use conflict resolution skills and socialize with peers in a structured but free flowing recess. They will take these skills into their classrooms and back home to you! How?? With the help of a Playworks Site Coordinator. Your Site Coordinator will be on campus 1 week each month to empower your school teachers, staff, students and a school staffed Recess Coach to implement strategies and games that help build a Playworks approved safe and healthy community.
Meet your Site Coordinator:
