RECESS: Otis is proud to welcome Playworks, a social-emotional curriculum that is integrated into recess. Volunteers who help at recess will have the great opportunity to learn about this program. Click HERE or read below to learn more about Playworks*.
LUNCH DUTY: Parents are needed every school day to provide supervision in the lunch room, help our younger students open food packages, make sure everyone is eating, and help promote clean-up. This is a great way to get to know the kids in the school.
Please refer to the Playground Supervision Guidelines for more information. All volunteers must sign in at the school office. All Recess and Lunch volunteers must also wear a volunteer badge and a green neon vest while on the yard or in the MPR.
*PLAYWORKS'’ vision is that one day every child in America will get to play—every day. We are changing school culture by leveraging the power of safe, fun, and healthy play at school every day. We create a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills. We offer an essential opportunity for children to explore their imaginations, to connect with other kids, and to stretch and grow physically, emotionally and socially.
