Jumping into Spring

Very close to the end of the year. We have just wrapped out the Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart event a couple weeks ago. The total was very good again and the kids will be getting their prizes very soon.


As for the classroom: K-4 has been brushing up on their baseball/softball skills. We started the same way as the Pros do with a little throw and catch. From there we moved onto fielding a hit ball and concluded with hitting the ball(off a tee and toss up). Games will be very exciting to play.


5-HS is in the middle of its new game, lacrosse. Going over the history and the rules was a new experience for a few kids. The games have been fun to watch and be a part of.

Make-ups



Parents: The first couple days of school, students' were sent home a syllabus from my class and on the back were 4 make-ups slips. If students are gone for any reason other than doctors visit, as I will receive a note from said doctor, they need to make up the missed day for full points. Any 30 minute activity is what they need to do: walking, biking, football, trampoline, tennis, etc... Sign the slip and send it back to school and I will put in their missing points.

THE MAKE-UPS ARE ONLY FOR THAT QUARTER WE ARE CURRENTLY IN...AFTER THE QUARTER IS OVER, I WILL NOT TAKE LATE SLIPS FOR THE OLD QUARTER
