The start to our year in PE has been just great! Thanks to all the parents that have sent a clean pair of tennis shoes with their child to keep in their locker for PE. We have been very busy and have already completed 2 fitness skill tests..the shuttle run and sit and reach! Hopefully we will have sun for the next few days so we can get our mile run completed. :)

Just a heads up that our Turkey Trot entry form will be coming home the end of this week. This is an annual Hudsonville Family Event that we would love for you to be a part of! Please read over the form and send it back in by Oct.6 if you are interested.

Turkey Trot Sponsors Needed!!

As the fall season quickly approaches, the Elementary P.E. staff at Hudsonville is busy planning the 25th Annual Turkey Trot running race for the students of Hudsonville Public Schools. The date of this very exciting event is scheduled for Tuesday, October 28, 2014.

Currently, we are in the process of contacting potential sponsors. If you own or manage a business and would like the opportunity to advertise your business at the 2014 Turkey Trot, please contact us as soon as possible.

For your donation of $150 you will receive recognition on the back of the t-shirts given to ALL participants. Last year there were 1,000 t-shirts made for this event! You will also receive a very special shirt for you to display in your business. There will also be recognition given to all sponsors via the public address system during the event. This is a great way to advertise for you businesses.

It’s time to head back to the Georgetown Elementary gym! Hope you had a great summer!!! Parents please remind your children to bring a clean pair of tennis shoes to keep in their locker on the first day of school. This pair does not have to be new…just clean!! We ask that the students keep them in their locker so they will always have them for PE. In order to do their best, they have to have proper footwear. Thanks so much for helping us with that!!

Schools out…all finished

What a wonderful year we had again. Parents, just wanted to remind you over the summer to check that your childs’ PE shoes still fit. Summer is the perfect time to find a clearance or cheaper pair of tennis shoes for the next school year if your child grows :) They will need a clean pair of tennis shoes in the fall that they can keep in their locker just for PE. They do not have to be new! Have a wonderful and safe summer! See you in the fall…Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering

Rain Rain Go Away

So much rain!!! Yesterday was the first day that we could get outside and do the mile for our fitness skills. Hopefully next week we can get the other 2 days of classes done. Then, we still have to hope for good weather so we can do the shuttle run outside.

Our annual 4th and 5th gr. field day is coming up on June 3. We are planning to get all the students signed up for their events in the next 3 days!! Busy, busy, busy!!!!

In the GYM

Well, Spring just doesn’t want to come and stay. We have had a couple nice days but it is still too cold to go outside for PE. We are starting to work on our Physical fitness skill tests and so far we have done sit-ups and sit/reach. The students should be preparing for the pacer test and push-ups! Mileage club is off to a good start and we will continue with that until May 16. :)

Tennis Shoes!


We know as the weather gets warmer that kids will start to wear tennis shoes, flip flops and sandals outside. Dirty shoes bring in lots of dirt and make the floor slippery. Please have a pair of clean tennis shoes in your locker, so you are prepared for P.E.
Thanks for your help!
