This February 1 MMS students will get the chance to partake in Global School Play Day.

Purposefully infusing play into middle classrooms holds the potential for a more joyful, creative, and school future for us all. MMS will give students a chance to play all afternoon on February 1. Kids will get to choose from a multitude of activities prepared by staff. Once kids have made their choices staff will stand back and encourage kids to get involved and be creative.

This article from TIME Magazine outlines the benefits of play at school.

Peter Gray, researcher at Boston College says this about the decline of play and the impact on children’s development.


Peter Gray also does a great Ted Talk about play. To watch it below.
