K/8th Kite Day Buddies

April 6 was unseasonable hot, but still a beautiful day to gather our K & 8th grade students to fly kites. The wind and our open field were both perfect! Tons of fun was had by ALL and a great way to kick off a well deserved Spring Break!

Every class participated in the Physical Education bowling unit.
Bowling is a fun, lifetime activity that incorporates math skills and cooperation. (no machines in the gymnasium;)
This year grades 5-8 participated in Bowling for Dollars, where each roll earned (movie)money. (more math skills!)
The top money earners are being treated to a pizza lunch from Mrs. George.
It was a great unit with music, disco lights and great bowling skills.
