Our first full week back at school was a busy one. All classes have had at least one period of Physical Education. Students had the opportunity to get moving and play a few low organized games this week. We also took some time to go through a class orientation. A few of the upper elementary classes had the chance to work on some team building exercises including: silent sorting, Rube Goldberg machines, and river crossing. Everyone seemed very keen to get started, it’s shaping up to be an awesome year ahead!
Our Cross Country team has now had two practices. We spent some time discussing pacing and distance during our first meeting, and also got the chance to run on our newly paved “track” (aka the parking lot loop). We will have one more practice next week on Wednesday followed by our first of two district races on Thursday @ Sansome School. Hope to see you there!
Just a friendly reminder for all our students/parents. Students need a proper pair of athletic shoes for Phys. Ed. classes. Students in grade 3-5 also require a change of clothes for class. A T-shirt and shorts is usually the best bet, but other comfortable clothes would work as well.
