Math While Moving
Students in Mrs. Dement's class move around the room to solve problems that are on the wall. The students appreciate being able to move around while still focusing on their math problems.
Students in Tech class are working on the lost art of typing skills everyday. I love to hear them challenging each other on how many words per minute they can type!

In Boys Athletics, the coaches had the boys running through an agility obstacle course. It was hard, but the boys were getting after it.
