Last year 90% of the children at 42nd St Elementary were sent to the office to be disciplined by the principal. Most of their issues stemmed from the violence at recess and spilled over in class. Playworks began this year with the coach teaching games to do at recess, he has worked with the classes on teamwork and peer mediation. 15 4th & 5th graders signed up to become recess leaders. This year the disciplinary issues have dropped to 1%, the kids are active and are doing better in class.
