Patty Horn, Vice Principal from Skycrest Elementary takes a minute out of her day to talk about The Playmakers Character and Leadership Academy.
I wanted to tell everyone what a great job Playmakers does on our site. Since we began our partnership with Coach Anthony and Coach Kyle, they have really stepped up and taken an active role in our kid’s lives. That has really provided the young men and women at my school positive male role models — and they normally don’t get that. Most of our kids are stuggling in that area and having these coach relationships has really enabled them to make better choices in the classroom. The communication between the teachers and coaches allows for more accountability for my students, and, all-in-all, we are seeing an uptick in moral and good behavior choices, and a down-tick in office referrals and suspensions. It is a really great program.
You are invited to visit our program at Skycrest Elementary and meet our young Playmakers.
