On November 10, 2017, Playworks Georgia was recognized as a 2017 Blue Ribbon Partner at the Fulton County Legacy of Excellence Awards Luncheon. Blue Ribbon Partners are recognized for their outstanding relationship with their partner school.
Fulton County Schools hosts the Legacy of Excellence Awards each fall to recognize outstanding principals, teachers, professionals, and community partners at every school. Principals, teachers, and professionals are nominated by their peers for their commitment to excellence in education, and community partners are nominated by schools for their contributions to Fulton County Schools. This year, Principal Taylor Pratt at Mary M. Bethune Elementary School nominated Playworks Georgia for the award.
Principal Taylor Pratt shared why he nominated Playworks Georgia: “I’ve been most impressed with the consistency of the program. There are a lot of great programs out there that do a lot of great things but they don’t always have the staying power. There’s no silver bullet for the problems our schools and our students are facing, but Playworks Georgia, first with Coach S and now with Coach Tel, puts the right people in the right place.”
Playworks Georgia is grateful for Principal Pratt’s leadership and all the teachers and students we work with every day at Bethune Elementary. We are excited to continue building on this amazing partnership and to bring out the best in every kid through the power of play.
