8 wks left!!!!

Wow….can not believe we are on the countdown for the end of the school year already.  We are in the middle of 6 different rotations of physical fitness skills.  We have completed our sit-ups and we are in process of completing sit and reach which tests our flexibility.  Then we will focus on push-ups, shuttle run, the mile run and the pacer.  So, lots to do and we are hoping for some warm weather to come our way!!

HOCKEY ANYONE?

WOW!  Teachers pull off the win again, but it was close.  5th graders 1, teachers 2!   It was a great game and the teachers were sweating this one out.  The 5th graders put up a great fight, but teachers are still undefeated.  This is the 11th year we have played the 5th graders and we keep getting older and they stay the same 🙂  Every year is harder and harder, but still so much fun!
