Coach Sinddy Makes Excellent Happen

  1. Updates

Coach Sinddy is a returning program coordinator who is no stranger to the mission and values of Playworks. Entering her second year with Playworks Massachusetts, she has returned to the Dever McCormack K-8 School in Dorchester. Coach Sinddy has mastered the concept of making excellent happen at her school, creating respectful, healthy and inclusive play for all students while building a healthy community for students, staff and faculty. Her weekly selection of a “Recess All-Star” reinforces these core values, and her creative cheers and claps at the end of recess show students how fun a healthy community can be.

During the month of September, Coach Sinddy volunteered to lead and manage breakfast time at the school. As the students enter the cafeteria area, Coach Sinddy greets each student by name with a smile and high-five. Additionally, she has transformed breakfast time into a fun and exciting time for all students, while making sure the transition from breakfast to the school day is organized and efficient. After breakfast is served, students are going back to the classroom prepared and ready to learn.

Coach Sinddy continued to make excellent happen at the Dever McCormack School by hosting over seventy volunteers from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts for a service project at her school. She was very involved in the preparation of the project, suggesting different tasks for the volunteers to complete to help make recess a more fun, inviting and colorful environment for the Dever McCormack community. After the project was complete, Coach Sinddy sent thank you videos, pictures and handwritten letters from the Junior Coaches to thank the volunteers. We are sure that her outgoing personality and amazing commitment to the Playworks movement will allow Coach Sinddy to continue to make excellent happen throughout the Boston community.
