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!!

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!

 

 

P.E. C.A.R.E.S. Bowling Field Trip!

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!
