Parent Coaches Transforming Recess

  1. Updates

Over 25 Parent Coaches run games and help students at Sherman Elementary resolve conflicts every week.  With such success at Sherman, Playworks is launching Parent Coach programs in partnership with PTAs at two more under-resourced schools.  These programs are not only increasing parent involvement but are highlighting the importance of recess and play for elementary students everyday.

The response has been overwhelming, parents are excited about getting involved with their child’s school in such a fun and important way and students love seeing their parents on the yard.  We hope to build on these programs in the months to come.  For more information or to volunteer please sign up online at
