    The Holiday Season is upon us - lots to be thankful for and lots of reasons to keep moving - warmth, exercise, enjoyment.  

    Students in 3rd through 6th grades are finishing up a great Basketball unit and will be starting up Volleyball before 2018 ends.  

    Students in Kindergarten through 2nd grades have been working on balances and supports, augmented by a variety of tag games.   Our Winter/Holiday stations are coming up soon with lots of seasonal music.  

    If you are looking for some direction to keep moving over break, below is our Twelve Days of Fitness Challenge

     As always, we encourage students to get at least 60 minutes of exercise a day and make healthy eating choices – augmented by an occasional holiday cookie of course – ‘tis the season after all.

    In addition to the normal activities, below are Twelve Challenges - students can do them all each day of break or one per day.   They are encouraged to check off each completed challenge and bring it back to school in January.

    Good luck and we in PE wish you Happy, Healthy Holidays!!
