Global School Play Day

Dear Bartle Families,

On Wednesday, February 7th, Bartle will participate in Global School Play Day 2024 (GSPD), a worldwide event endorsed by Psychology Today. This year, we're embracing the theme of Kindness in line with February's Random Acts of Kindness month. Discover more at

Students are invited to bring non-electronic play items like Legos, board games, dolls, puzzles, etc. Please label all items with your child’s name. Note: No electronic devices or toy weapons allowed. Our special day will feature rotations through three stations in Dolphin Pods: 1. A movement station for physical activities. 2. A Kindness craft station to create and share. 3. Gym time with favorite gym equipment.

Homerooms will be paired with other grade levels, allowing each pair to participate in the rotation activities for an hour either in the morning or in the afternoon. When not in their scheduled rotation, students will have the opportunity for free play in their homerooms, supervised and facilitated by teachers.

Attached you'll find the Day of Play Expectations flyer to ensure a fun and inclusive day for everyone. We're looking forward to a day filled with play, exploration, and kindness!
