Playworks Junior Coaches

Playworks Junior Coaches
Posted on 02/11/2019
PlayworksAs you may have read in previous newsletters, 4th and 5th grade students are junior coaches at recess for younger grades as part of the Playworks program. Students learn about problem solving, conflict resolution and reinforcing "being good to each other". The junior coaches were asked about their experience. They said they really like it, they like being a role model for younger students, and "I probably shouldn't say this, but it gets me out of some class time." They really like working with the younger students saying it is so much fun. A new crew of junior coaches are being trained, allowing more 4th and 5th graders to experience this mentoring opportunity.
