One of the many ways we like to acknowledge our students and their hard work is through our Player of the Week Award. Each Friday Mika, our Playworks coach, selects a student who has modeled outstanding leadership and embodies the Playworks core values.
Ayisha from 4th grade was awarded Player of the Week for making the
core value Healthy Play happen for her class and the school. While
Ayisha has always shown excellent sporting behavior during class game
time and recess, she especially has worked hard to increase her
participation in activities recently. It makes a big difference when
all students come out of their shell to play hard and have fun.
Thanks, Ayisha! Keep it up!
Terren, a 5th grader, received Play of the Week for the Playworks core value healthy play. Coach Mika has been so excited to see Terren become more comfortable joining in a variety of games during recess. Thank you Terren for making our community better by bringing your teamwork skills to recess activities!
This round of Player of the Week goes to the following K2 players: Anika, Anthony, Ben, Happiness, Jacob, Mauricio, Naijaya, Rory, Tessa, Timmy, and Zev. After just learning the game of wall ball just a few week prior, they showed their confidence by participating in the K2-2nd grade wall ball tournament.

October 19th, Clementine, a 2nd grader, received Player of the Week for showing her leadership skills during recess. At the K2, 1st, and 2nd grade recess, the students from the lower grades feel awesome when 2nd grade role models show them how to play games and help them have fun. Clem does just that when she encourages the little people as they learn core recess games.

The Player of the Week for October 12th is Cleyah, one of our youngest Manning friends, and a superstar at her class game times. She respectfully reminds other students of the rules and makes them feel good with her kind words. When other students get out from a game, she encourages them by singing (yes, singing!) “good try, good try.” Cleyah is not just a role model for her classmates, but everyone in the school!
