CHALLENGE TAKEN – CHALLENGE MET!!

Once again our GT family came through and we reached our goal of having 300 kids at Georgetown register for Kids Heart Challenge.  We met the goal for our school and raised over $10,000.00 for the American Heart Association.  AMAZING!

We will be wrapping up handing out the instant gifts next week and ordering the gifts like t-shirts, jump ropes, etc. (Hopefully we will have those “ordered” gifts by spring break)

 

Again, thanks so much for the support!

PE CARES BOWLING

We had a great trip to the Hudsonville Bowling Lanes this afternoon!!  Mr. Kooiker’s 4th grade class had a ball!!  His class raised the most donations in November for LOVE INC. and was the winner of PE CARES t-shirts and a bowling field trip.  We are SO grateful that Hudsonville Lanes continues to support our PE programs in this way.  Please, if you happen to visit their bowling alley, give a great big thank you for letting us come.  🙂

PE in December

We have been working hard and finished up our nutrition unit and are now doing a couple Fitness Circles.  Each class has 14 different stations to complete with a partner and they rotate every 2 minutes.  They get Sweaty Sweaty!!!  Here are a few pics from the last couple weeks…
