Peaceful Playgrounds Transformation

Stark County Elementary Opens with Health Department Grant

Stark County Elementary School and the Henry Stark Health Department are partnering together with funds from the We Choose Health Grant to transform the elementary playground to an area of learning and physical activity.  Stark County Elementary teachers and staff members from the health department worked hard to create different activity templates on the flat surface of the playground. Staff members of Stark County Elementary School are working with students to provide structured activities on the playground.  Peaceful Playground games encourage increased physical activity and minimize the opportunity for bullying.  Students will practice team building skills and participate in creative play.  Students will learn conflict resolution strategies and create an atmosphere of fair play.  A special thank you to the staff members who worked hard to create this experience for our students and community.
