EVENT DATE: Feb 01, 2013

THE STORY:

Welcome to the Mather Playworks Program website.  Playworks is an organization that transforms schools by providing play and physical activity at recess and throughout the school day.  Addressing the healthy development of Boston’s youth and the amount of physical activity provided in schools is a critical step toward building strong school communities and helping Mather students grow emotionally, socially and physically

Meet the Mather

The Mather Elementary School, is the first public elementary school in North America. It is located in the historic Meeting House Hill neighborhood of Dorchester, in Boston, Massachusetts.

The school serves a highly diverse population of 580 students in pre-kindergarten through grade 5:

• 98% are children of color.
• 85% are from low-income homes.
• 50% speak a first language other than English.
• 15% receive special education services.
100% dream of achieving great things. 

Playworks restores valuable teaching time, reduces bullying, increases physical activity and improves the school and learning environment.  Playworks 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 transforms recess into a safe, fun and inclusive environment that gets students active and engaged so they can return to the classroom focused and ready to learn.

You can make a difference.

Through the Mather Playworks Program, you can help raise money for a specific classroom with kids who are excited to learn and a teacher who is dedicated to teaching. Your generosity will help the administration at the Mather fund important programs and classroom needs.

Here’s how you can help:

• Make a tax-deductible donation today.
• Encourage your friends and family to make a donation.

Are you ready to be a Champion? The children of the Mather are counting on you!
