Celebrating our Coaches!

  1. Updates

During National Teacher Appreciation Week, the Playworks Baltimore team visited each school to shower appreciation on our rock star coaches.  When we say "showered," we mean a full on, as-loud-as-we-can-get cheer for each coach. This was a complete surprise to all the coaches making it fun and hilarious to see their reactions and even better to see their students join us in appreciating their coach.  The school administrators all thought it was awesome.
