Partner of the Quarter

  1. Updates

We would like to congratulate Franklin Pierce Elementary School for being our Power Play Partner of the Quarter.

Pierce recieved this award due to their efforts to increase ownership, participation, and opportunities for safe play.

This past quarter, Pierce has had great turnout at our Playworks league nights by both parents and staff members. Our league nights are a place for kids to develop their athletic skills and be a part of a team, as well as an opportunity to engage with the community. The more parents and staff are supporting the players, the stronger the community gets.

Pierce has also greatly increased their support for Playworks both in the classroom and outside at recess. This year, 98% of the staff actively participated in Class Game Time and recess creating a much more involved and friendly atmosphere.

Thank you Pierce for all of your support.  We love having you as a partner!
