We are proud to partner with Playworks to make recess a fun, inclusive time for every student in our community

Dear Snow Families,

 

I am 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.

 

Get Excited!

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 to implement these new strategies to help all students at our school experience safe and healthy play every day.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to building and sustaining a community of safe and healthy play!

 

Sincerely,

Amal Alcodray, Snow School Principal

Oct. 10 is National Walk to School Day

Oct. 10 is national Walk to School Day, and Snow School is planning to participate.  We are encouraging all families to consider walking or biking students to school that day.  A healthy lifestyle, including sufficient exercise, improves student achievement. Does your child get the suggested 60 minutes or more each day of physical activity?  More families walking would also reduce traffic congestion around the school.  Snow PTA will provide a small gift to all the students who participate on Oct. 10.
For more information, visit the Walk & Bike to School website at http://www.walkbiketoschool.org/.
