Just checking in with an October update...

Middle schoolers are currently fitness testing, specifically focused on the health related components of fitness; body composition, cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. We will be evaluating our results and discussing some goal setting with students in order to help them improve any personal fitness categories.

Grades 3/4 are also doing fitness related activities and games. They will be introduced to the health related components of fitness and will practice some of the testing procedures we use in the middle school.

Grade k-2 are currently working on hopping, jumping, and leaping and practicing different landing techniques.  We are focused on body awareness and how the arms assist in the jumping and landing process for creating momentum and improving balance.

Have and great finish to Fall!

Looking forward to a safe an happy Holiday season ahead!

Welcome Back!!

Welcome Back!

I am sure everyone is excited about the start of a new school year! Lots of fun and new opportunities ahead!

Elementary parents, please remember to check your student's schedule for their scheduled PE classes. Students need to have sneakers on PE day!!!

Middle schoolers, please remember that you will need to bring a change of clothes for Phys. Ed. class. Lockers and locks will be made available for students who want them and will use them.

*********************************************************************************

If you wish for your child to be excused from physical education activities due to illness or injury, a written note is required to explain the situation.  If the child is excused for more than two consecutive days when they have Physical Education, a doctor’s note is required. For extended absences a doctor’s note is required for your child to return to Physical Education class. 

Look forward to seeing all of you!!

Happy Spring Everybody.  It is so nice to finally be getting some warm Spring temps!

K-2
Our final month of school will involve many skills related to striking with long and short handled implements such as paddles, racquets, and bats. We will also be working on throwing and catching skills.

Grades 3-4
We will also be working on our paddle and racquet skills at this grade level, introducing students to badminton skills and rules.  We will be playing some t-ball and coach-pitch baseball/softball as well to work on our batting, throwing and catching skills.

Middle School
Middle school students are beginning their racquet and paddle sports unit.  Grades 5-6 will be learning the skills of badminton and rules for doubles play.  Grades 7-8 will be reviewing skills and rules of game play as they start class doubles tournaments.  We will conclude our year with baseball/softball and some cooperative games as the month of June rolls around.

Enjoy the beautiful weather!
