What better way to development professional playground skills then combining play with academic acumen? Thanks to Playworks, a national recess model, PSUSD is implementing organized recess in five of our elementary schools this year. Made possible by a generous grant from The Fogeslon Family Foundation’s Game ON! initiative, along with a host of private local funders, PSUSD was able to employ a Recess Coach at five of our elementary schools, who were trained earlier this week.
Building a cultural of inclusion, respect, healthy play and healthy communities the model uses "ol’ skool" playground games like four square, hula hooping and tag, ice breakers and readiness games to foster genuine, collaborative, conflict free relationships on our playgrounds. What better way to get kids moving every day!
Thanks to our pioneering schools -- Julius Corsini ES, Cathedral City ES, Vista Del Monte ES, Bella Vista ES, and Della Lindley ES for implementing the program this year.
