The TeamUp program has been a game-changer for our school. We continue to rely on the outstanding support and expertise of our partners at Playworks, while gaining our very own, in-house coordinator, who’s already become an indispensable part of our community. Every day, we see the fruit of this investment—joyful children who are learning teamwork, character development, and leadership— all within the context of that most essential of all childhood experiences: play. Thanks for inviting us to build a team here at Byers that will ensure the long-term sustainability of this program!
