Field day is supposed to be this Friday, June 7. However the weather report is not looking favorable. In the case of rain, we will have Field day on Monday, June 10. Please remember to have students wear sneakers, put sunscreen on and bring a water bottle! If you would like to volunteer please talk to your child's teacher or me. We need face painters and helpers to run the activity stations. Keep your fingers crossed for warm sunny weather!

With the end of the school year quickly closing in on us there are a lot of things happening in PE!
First, the Mile Run for students in grades 3-5 will be starting next week. This is their second time doing it this year. Students set a goal for themselves and will be trying to make or beat the time they set for themselves last fall. To help students do their best they should be getting out and exercising for at least an hour every day, have a good night sleep and healthy breakfast.
Other important dates:
Friday, May 24 : ACES DAY Everyone will be going outside and exercising together. Please make sure students wear their sneakers that day.Friday, May 7: FIELD DAY Volunteers needed. Please ask your classroom teacher if they need help.
