For the last nine weeks in P.E. we are working on Soccer and Striking skills. Our Health topics are Health Related Fitness Components and Safety. We are also taking Fitnessgram Fitness Tests. This Sunday, April 7, some of our teachers will participate in the Cap10K. The community is invited to join us! We will have our K-2 Family Fun and Fitness Day in May. I will send the date once I verify that with our administration. I am also planning a 5th grade Volleyball team VS Teachers game. Thanks for all you do for our school! Once a Thunderbird always a Thunderbird!
