Junior Coach Arvin Makes Excellent Happen

  1. Updates

Junior Coach Arvin is a student at the Bowditch Elementary School in Salem with Coach Kristin. Arvin is a natural born leader that is shining as a Junior Coach. He is reliable and steps right in to resolve conflicts. He promotes healthy play by ensuring all students are having fun and engaged at recess. If a grade is having difficulty listening, he takes the initiative to say "Give Me Five", which is the school's signal for being quiet and ready.

During the month of November, Arvin truly demonstrated his value as a leader when a first grade student was having a difficult time at recess. Without prompting, he spoke with the student, and got him back on track, all while using kind and firm language. This student now often asks to be Arvin's helper. It is moments like these that show his drive to excel at being a Junior Coach.

Junior Coach Arvin has taken the initiative to work with students and teachers to create an incentive system to encourage students to follow the dress code.  His teachers appreciate the way he contributes to class discussions and volunteers to help others. He understands how to balance his responsibilities, yet still retains his playful side. The school and Playworks community appreciate Arvin for his respectful behavior, focus in his academics, and kindness towards others. We look forward to seeing him continue to grow as a student, leader, and Junior Coach.
