In partnership with Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island and Rhode Island Healthy School's Coalition, Primrose Hill School completed Playworks' PlayShop, an experiential workshop designed to decrease negative behaviors and increase positive play during recess. Through PlayShop, paraprofessionals and educators learned "group management and conflict resolution tools; an inspired understanding of how recess, play, and physical activity can positively impact school climate; and a powerful perspective on the barriers students face when accessing healthy play and how adults can ease those challenges." Students and professionals at Primrose Hill loved the experience and will continue their recess improvement work in 2017-2018. For more information about the program click here.
