It's already November and I can hard believe how fast the year is going by. The holidays will be here shortly.
Our classes have just finished our annual Ghost Hunt activity last week. This one of our highlight activities of the year. I am sure that some of the students were coming home talking about how much fun they had. Grades 3-5 have just started doing our Pipeline Relay game. This is a team building activity where they need to form an assembly line of pipe to move an object ball from one end of the gym to anothe without dropping it. We also discuss certain scientific terms that make the students familiar of the connection between science and physical education.
Grades k-2 have just started using the parachute. This activity always brings excitement among the class. It's a great way to build arm strength while they have a fantastic time. There are so many different movements and games that are so good for the students when they use the parachute.
The 3-5 students are also preparing fo the first part of the President's Fitness Test. They are practicing their sit ups as part of the warm up for now. We are hoping to get this part of the test done before the Thanksgiving vacation.
The classes are doing a great job as usual in PE class and are working really hard. Again, if there is anything we can do to help out your child or any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me here at school. Also, make sure your child is wearing their sneakers on PE day. Thanks again for all your support.
