Recess Ranger Program

collage of teachers, parents and studentsAre you looking for a place to plug in at Brown? Wanting to do something positive for lots of students and have fun at the same time? Then Recess Rangers may be the perfect volunteer opportunity for you.

Rangers volunteer on the playground during recess at lunch (approximately 12:10-1:25) with 1st-5th graders to be a positive presence on the playground and to engage students in physical activity. Some of the goals for the the Recess Ranger Program:

  • RECHARGE- increase student participation in physical activity so that they recharge their brains and are ready to focus when class resumes
  • REFRESH- introduce new organized games or activities to increase students’ interest in active play
  • RECONNECT- Increase the presence of positive adults to whom students can communicate needs or problems.
