What is Peaceful Playground?
We are so lucky here at Solana Vista to have the Peaceful Playground Program! It is grant-funded and was implemented in January, 2012. Our blacktops went through a drastic transformation and the end result was a colorful and inviting playground that provides our students with many options during recess and lunch periods. Peaceful Playground reduces bullying and exclusion, promotes fair play and builds good sportsmanship. Some of the games available include pickle, foursquare, tetherball, shuffle board, alphabet and number grids, hopping and skipping lines, multi-use circles and squares, and other 100+ other games. It is designed to maximize the number of students involved in physical activity, rather than having them wait in lines or sitting out.

We can ALWAYS use parent volunteers on our playgrounds. If you work locally or have a flexible schedule, all it takes is 30-45 min a week on your lunch break to help out and make a huge difference during lunch recess. We need parents to help set up games, run peaceful playground activities and get kids motivated and active!
