We had a great ending to our mileage club. GT students ran 3,657 miles all together!!!!! We had our prize drawing last Friday and handed out our awards for the 20 mile runners! Way to go GT mileage club joggers 🙂
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!!
We are busy finishing up our hockey/pillo polo unit with all of our classes. Stay tuned for an update about the annual 5th grade teams vs. the teachers. We will be playing that on Feb. 1. 🙂
Starting January 27 -February 1(our 4 day rotation), we will be talking with our classes about Jump Rope For Heart. Each student will be getting information and a pledge envelope when they come to P.E., Jan. 27-Feb.1. Please take the time to read the information and sign up your child/children if you are willing to help raise money for the American Heart Association. Last year our school raised $8,648.00 and our goal this year is to raise the same or more. Please keep checking the blog for more information about JRFH!
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 :
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
