Specials News ~ PE

All the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students have recently completed their final fitness assessments of the year which include: the Pacer (cardiovascular endurance running test), and push-ups and shoulder stretch. It’s been fun to see these students working hard to meet their fitness goals. After the fitness testing, we’ve started volleyball and have practiced serves and worked on passing. Soon we’ll play modified volleyball games. Our younger students have been playing games that involve striking and eye hand coordination as well as many other fun games.
