Highlands Physical Education...

The only subject that makes your heart race!

Floor Hockey, Paddles/Rackets, Badminton, Basketball and more!!

Over the past month and a half, students have been working on their striking skills in both floor hockey and their paddles/rackets/badminton units. Most recently, students completed the PACER test, both individually and in a small group. Other recent completed units include, basketball and parachute activities.

The 4th/5th grade Intramural Floor Hockey club is winding down, t-shirts will be distributed on March 12th. Students are having a blast competing against their classmates.

The 5th graders went skiing at Hyland Hills on Tuesday, Feb. 24th. The video at the bottom of the newsletter will give you a better picture of the day.

Upcoming units include: bowling, jump rope, Jump Rope for Heart and volleyball!

The 4th grade bowling trip is scheduled for Friday, March 20th. Permission slips are being handed out this week. Please have your child return form and $ to their CLASSROOM teacher by Wednesday, March 18th.
