MSE Foundation partnered with Playworks Washington, D.C., providing a $25,000 grant and programming for the 2016-17 school year. Playworks is currently in 18 public and public charter schools in Washington, D.C., bringing safe, meaningful play to 7,100 students every day.
Playworks is a national nonprofit organization that transforms schools by providing play and physical activity at recess and throughout the school day.
It teaches children to resolve their own conflicts that arise at recess and carry over to the classroom, improving school climate both on and off the playground. Playworks helps transform recess into a safe, fun and inclusive time that gets students active and engaged so they can return to the classroom focused and ready to learn.
