Dear Washington Families,

Since the start of the school year, our students have been filling their days with fun and engaging lessons. Our physical education classes just completed the inline skating/scooter unit. Our classes just completed the inline skating unit. Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students have been filling their days learning how to inline skate while taking ownership and responsibility for their equipment. Our kindergarten through 2nd grade students were also on wheels working on individual and partner scooter challenges. After winter break, we will begin our gymnastics unit. As always, please make sure your child has their gym shoes on or that they keep an extra pair of gym shoes in their locker.

If you would like to see what's happening in your child's physical education class at Washington, follow us on Twitter!
