On Friday, December 16 the fourth graders from Mr. Kooikers class got to head to Hudsonville Lanes for winning the P.E. C.A.R.E.S. food drive contest. The fourth graders got to bowl two games, and had so much fun. Thanks to Hudsonville Lanes for supporting our food drive cause and allowing us to go bowling for free. Thanks again to all of our GT families for making the food drive a success.
P.S. Thanks to the Hilaski Family for bringing in pizza to share with Mr. K’s fourth graders. It was super good!
We decided to do fitness stations with all kinds of equipment! Our treadmill, bicycles, fit boards, ARC machine, strength bands, weights and more! Here are a few pictures…
We are so proud of our students and their families in how they help our Hudsonville Community! GT students donated 2,653 items for LOVE INC. The class that donated the most items was Mr. Kooikers 4th grade!! They donated 392 items!! They will each get a PE CARES t-shirt and a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lanes!!
We are in the middle of our Nutrition month and discussing the 5 food groups and what we need to do to keep our bodies healthy! We are also bringing in lots of food to help with PE CARES (collecting and regiving essential supplies). K classes continue to work on underhand throw. Here are a few pictures!

What a GREAT night for the Turkey Trot!!!! The weather was beautiful and we had over 1000 students there with their families running the race. Thank you SO much to ALL our volunteers and sponsors! What a great way for the community to all come together and support our kids 🙂 Here are a few pictures :
Tuesday, October 25 is the big day!!!! If you registered your child for the race, they should have brought their race bag and shirt home yesterday 🙂 Please make sure on the day of the race, the bib number is pinned to the outside of whatever they are wearing. We need to be able to see the bib color as they finish. Thanks for all your help with this!
Please dress for the weather and we will see you at the race!!!!

We have had a great start to PE and have been able to get the kids outside!! We love that 🙂 We are heading in to begin fitness testing starting this week with sit and reach. The kids are doing a wonderful job with their stretch and strength exercises and warm-ups!!
We can not wait to see all of you again in PE for the upcoming school year!!! Don’t forget to bring your PE shoes on the very first day of school so you can keep them in your locker and be prepared to come to the gym. Remember, they do not have to be new…just clean and the right size!! See you soon! Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering
