A Message from BCE PE:

Hello Bear Creek Families!


Volleyball and muscular system review is the plan for this week :) Students in 2-5 grade will get muscular system review sheets this week, and our assessments will be in PE next week Wednesday-Friday. We should get some good volleyball game play in this week as well! Students are learning how to set up on the court, and learning the basic rules of the game all while putting the skills we've been working on into action. Our younger students will practice volley skills and then learn about the court and the game through a throwing and catching game.



Thank you for your continued support!


Ms. Schultz and Ms. Hazard
