A Message From Ms. Saenz

Hello Cubs,


Happy Women's History Month! Our library lessons will be focusing on diverse reads from Read Across America and will be celebrating women's contributions to society. International Women's Day is on March 8th!


Women's History Month honors notable women leaders such as Sacagawea, Susan B, Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Amelia Earhart, Misty Copeland, Katherine Johnson, and so many more!


I have also added a virtual library room for Read Across America! I hope you visit our library's blend page and listen to some of these incredible stories! If you do, make sure to find me and let me know how you liked them.


Finally,

If you have any books from your previous school (Kiker, Baranoff) please return them to Bear Creek and I will make sure the librarians receive them. Both Kiker and Baranoff are missing many books and some of our cubs have them at home. Let's help return them so that other students will have the opportunity to read and enjoy them.


Thank you all!

Ms. Saenz

A Message From Ms. Schultz

I hope everyone had a safe and healthy Spring Break!


Just before the break I was given a gift of appreciation from The Bear Creek Community and y'all it was perfect! Thank you SO much for the plant, Wisconsin Badger gear (if you know me - you know I had a huge smile seeing that!), and gift cards to my favorite store and place to eat - Y'ALL ARE THE BEST :)


This week we will be working on finishing up our volleying unit. Volleying will be the first grade for the fourth quarter in PE. Once we wrap up volleying, our new skill concepts will be hand and foot dribbling and our health concept will focus on sleep and stress management.


Student expectations, rubrics, learning resources, and previous lessons for current units are always posted on the grade level PE BLEND Pages. I will continue to post the volleying rubrics up until we finish that unit, and will post the hand and foot dribbling and sleep/stress management unit information next week.


During our muscular strength and endurance unit we began to look at the FitnessGram components of push-ups and curl-ups. We will be incorporating more FitnessGram measurements into our PE classes in the fourth quarter. Click on the BCE FitnessGram Website button below for more information on FitnessGram.


Please continue to use the PE BLEND Courses as your first source of information regarding PE, and message me through Blend or email with any further questions.


Thank you for your continued support!
