We are into our third week of school and accomplishing many things. We have begun fitness testing and the students are doing thier best to better their times/distances from last year and setting some goals for the year ahead. We have spent a little time talking about how they want their time in Phy Ed to feel and how they want to be treated by their classmates. They came up with some great rules for all to follow such as:
Put yourself in a good place
Show good sportsmanship
Follow the rules
Do the right thing
Use self control
Keep hands to yourself
There were more that they offerd but these tended to be the most repeated. Phy Ed is a unique time in the school day when they get to move and run but need to do so in a way that is safe and in a way that fits the rules.
The Faribault Cross Country 1 Mile Run for 1st-5th graders is quickly appoaching and is scheduled for Sept. 30th at Alexander Park again. Please refer to the attached flyer for details. I hope that many of our students take advantage of this FUN RUN as we traditionally have in the past.
We have been working very hard at slowly increasing our running endurance here at school and hope to run the 1mile (grades 1-5) and 1/2 mile for kindersthis week during Phy Ed class. Children are allowed/encouraged to bring a water bottle out to the track if they so desire.
