Turkey Trot—WOW!!!

Turkey Trot was amazing last night.  Good weather, full stands and a record number of runners!  Over 1100 participants enjoyed a night of running.  It is so great to see the kids running with smiles on their faces and the parents cheering them on.  A huge THANK-YOU to all our sponsors and volunteers.  We could not make this night possible with out all of you!  What a great community event for our Hudsonville students and families.

Be sure to check out the Advance paper, I think we will have some GT kids making the headlines!

Enjoy some pictures of the night!

PE Happenings

Yay…we only have 2 more fitness skill tests to complete!!! We finished the mile, shuttle run, sit-ups, and sit and reach flexibility.  This week we will be finishing the Pacer Test and then push-ups.  You can help your child at home by doing a few push-ups with them every night!!!

Remember our annual Turkey Trot race will be held Tuesday night October 27!  There will be late registration at the track that night if you forgot to sign up and would still like to come.

Nine square in the air!

We have a new game at GT this year.  Nine square in the air, is what it is called.  The kids have loved learning how to play and are getting better at playing it.  We have made it so we can play it at 6 feet tall with 3rd-5th graders and 4 feet tall with 1st-2nd graders.  It is so fun!  Ask your kids about it!!

Check it out on you-tube, to see how you play.

Here are some photos of our kids playing it…
