The student vs. teacher annual hockey game was played last Friday, February 2. The students gave a valiant effort but came up short. The teachers came out with a 4-0 victory. Teachers remain undefeated!
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 🙂
Yay, we have completed the Pacer test!! This is part of the Presidential Fitness Testing that we do with all 1st -5th grades. We have the mile and shuttle run to do next. We are hoping for some dry warm weather!!
Wow, so far GT students have logged 1,113 miles!!!!! Way to go kids, keep up the great work 🙂
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!!
The weather might not have been the greatest but all the kids were troopers. We had 44 runners from Georgetown come out and run in the rain! They all did a great job and we are so proud of our GT Runners. We have a few highlights and photos to share.
