PE Happenings – November/December

I hope most of you put in the effort to participate in this year’s first Walk and Bike to School.  Mark your calendar, we will repeat this the first Wednesday of each month this year.  There will be one exception in January.  Our first week back from vacation is the week of the 8th.  Our WB2S will be the 10th of January.

We were able to get outside this fall and get through a Tennis unit with the 3rd-5th grades.  Then we moved on to football skills.  This was a nice change from last fall when we were pushed in so early and then dealt with such a wet school year.

Kinder through 2nd grades started off working on cooperation activities.  We also covered playground activities.   We moved on to some fun Frisbee activities before starting volleyball skills for all grades.

Next up will be Basketball skills and lead up activities.

With the rains of fall and winter we all tend to move indoors.  Try to take advantage of those rare breaks in the weather and get the family outside for a walk.  We are so privileged to live in such a diverse climate in the mid valley.  Each day brings something new to our landscape.  Walking is a great way to explore our seasonal changes.
