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.
