Playworks Junior Coaches from the Garfield School in Revere led recess in the State House as part of MA Action for Health Kids legislative breakfast. The students led legislators, Senate staff and adults from across the state in 4-square, Switch and Drop the Cookie, one of 35 tag games in the Playworks playbook.
Metro Boston Executive Director Max Fripp moderated the event and encouraged participants to implement "proven and scalable models aimed at improving the health of kids and schools." Max shared news that the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has identified recess as the greatest opportunity to ensure daily physical activity in low-income schools, and that Playworks is positioned to make play and recess an important part of the school day across the state.
