As School Year Closes: We Look Back

  1. Updates

As we wrap up the 2012-13 school year, it is nice to reflect back on the fun we’ve had and the positive changes we’ve seen in our schools and students we serve. Our amazing coaches have spent the school year playing with, guiding and teaching over 5,000 students in our 11 partner schools. As a result, school spirit and inclusiveness has increased, bullying has decreased and students are returning to the classroom focused and ready to learn. Also, more than 150 students had the benefit of joining a basketball or volleyball team; many of them joining a team for the very first time.  

Playworks Denver would like to thank the amazing staff at our schools, our hard-working and inspiring coaches, our hundreds of supporters and, of course, the students who make it all worth it; thank you everyone for making this a great year! 

We encourage everyone to stay active and playful throughout the summer.  If you need game ideas remember to check out our playbook; it’s filled with tons of fun, active games that will keep a smile on your face all summer long.

We are excited to start a new chapter. We'll be kicking off the 2013-14 school year and expanding into 18 schools across Denver and Aurora. 

We are looking forward to the new opportunities ahead of us and cannot wait to continue our mission. Play is contagious and guess what, folks? It’s spreading quickly!
