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!
Time to get out your whistles and tennis shoes so you can dress like your PE Teacher!!!! Tomorrow, Friday Jan 27 is the big day 🙂
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!
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!

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 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
