A message from our PE Teacher, Julia Gee (grades 1-9)

Dear Parents,

Here is a heads up for our PE Plans for this year.

  • Run to the Moon Goal - the moon is approximately 250,000 miles from earth. The goal is to run 1 mile for every 10,000 miles to reach the "moon". Please keep track of your student's mileage on the forms that I provided them. Once they reach the required 25 required miles, please send a signed note so I can give them credit.
  • Presidential Fitness Program - The Presidential Youth Fitness Program helps schools achieve excellence in physical education through quality fitness education and assessment practices by providing tools to: teach fitness concepts, assess fitness and understand results, plan for improvement or maintenance of fitness levels and empower students to be fit and active for life.
  • Elks Club Hoop Shoot - The Elks Club hoop shoot will be offered to 8-11 year old students. This is a foul shooting competition. Students who are "in it to win it" should practice! The winning students will go on to compete at Bonneville High School on November 15th.

Let's keep our students healthy and active. Research has shown more active brain neurons in the brains of students who are physically active. If you have any questions please email me at

Thank you,

Julia Gee
