One of our parents, Mrs. Gasaway, nominated FRES for a recess grant from Playworks, a company that specializes in play. FRES won the grant and is receiving a 3-hour workshop on play. Playworks is the leading national nonprofit leveraging the power of play to transform children’s social and emotional health. Its vision is “When children have opportunities to learn conflict resolution skills, feel included, be active, and practice leadership on the playground, they go back to class focused and ready to learn.  Playworks develops these skills through play every day.

The FRES recess monitors and paraeducators will be participating in this training so that they can support a safe and nurturing environment on the playground. If you are a parent who is interested in volunteering at lunch and recess, we would like to invite you to participate in this training as well!

When is the training? Friday, Nov. 10, 2017 @ 1 – 4 pm

Where is the training? Forest Ridge in the Media Center
