October Staff Member of the Month

  1. Updates

Officer Dalton is a very involved Student Resource Officer at Loma Linda School in Phoenix, AZ and is a huge champion of Playworks.

Throughout the day, Officer Dalton can be found cycling or scooting his way around campus and is always eager to jump in and learn new games during Class Game Time.   His genuine love of play and active engagement has a huge impact on the students.

During the month of October,  Officer Dalton organized a Police Play Day with Playworks and 5th grade students.  His hope during the event was that children could see that not all cops are not “bad” – as students sometimes perceive.  Through positive role-modeling – playing 4-square, dodgeball and tag at recess – Officer Dalton continually emphasizes that he, though an SRO, is just like everyone else and cares about each student as much as teachers do.

The event was a huge success for everyone that participated.

A true part of the high-five community at Loma Linda, we are thrilled to honor Officer Dalton as our October Staff-Member of the Month for embodying Playworks culture and further helping to #EnergizeAZ.
