Notes from the Gym


I can’t believe it’s almost the end of 2016. With cooler temperatures, what better way to get warm than with some exercise in P.E. class. We have an exciting schedule of events coming up for the year. As always, we will be learning sport skills such as; basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, baseball, & track. We completed the first round of the FitnessGram testing and the kids did great. We had several new records to add to the “Wall of Fame” outside the gym. The students will again perform the tests in the spring so that they can evaluate their progress throughout the year.


As for upcoming events, we have our annual Jump Rope for Heart on February 3rd. This is through the American Heart Association, and is a good fund raiser for a terrific organization, along with great exercise for the students. More information will be coming home at the beginning of January.


Tuesday, May 16th brings our annual Washington Field Day for all of the students, which is always a fun day for students and teachers alike.
