Partner of the Quarter: Albert Story School

  1. Updates

Congratulations to Albert Story School, our Playworks Partner of the Quarter!

Story is a second year Playworks school that has embraced the power of play for students K3-8th grade. Staff members have committed to the success of their partnership with Playworks starting at the top with the principal prioritizing opportunities for all students to play. Teachers learn new games alongside their students, and they collaborate with Coach Maryann on ways to bring play into the classroom. A Story Junior Coach was the first to win the state-wide Junior Coach of the Month Award. Over the past two school years, four teachers have been recognized as Power Play Educators of the Month.

We are excited to celebrate Story. Go Gators!
