Welcome back!  I am so excited to start the year and hear all about the summer adventures. 

 Make sure to check schedules for PE days, students will need to wear sneakers on all PE days (even if they have it on the first day!).  

Grades 3-4 will be starting the year with fitness, getting ready for the fitness test in November.
Grades K-2 will be working with locomotor movements and personal space.

Go to the photo gallery to see pictures of 4th graders using iPads to record their partners as they practice for the curl up test.  The students then watched the video and took time to peer and self assess.

If you have any used sneakers that are in good condition bring them in so we can have them for any students who forget to wear sneakers.  Image result for pe quotes

HCS Wellness:

Our goal in the wellness department is to teach our students how to lead healthy and active lives both in school and outside of school.  We teach everything from traditional invasion sports (basketball, soccer, floor hockey) to lifetime activities such as cupstacking, yoga, fitness and dance.  We teach students how to control their bodies while performing locomotor movements such as hopping, skipping, jumping, galloping and sliding.  

In our health classes we focus on nutrition, body systems such as circulation, digestion and more.  We teach our students how to take care of their bodies and minds.
