The PE department

What do you see in this photograph?  Maybe the calm of a peaceful day?  The calm before the grade level storm that many people on campus call planning.  If you look closely at the photo, out on the concrete there are 50-100 specs of color.  They are hula hoops.  Hula hoops strategically placed to teach our little stingrays how to control both their fine and gross motor skills and abilities.  Hula Hoops that will be used to structure a game that will ultimately teach teamwork and maybe even a little compassion and perseverance.  That is what I see when I look at this photo.  All the work that our PE team puts into every 40 minute block every day.

I originally took these photos below during the JDRF.  Two months ago!!!!  Geesh, who am I?  But I am on a quest to make sure that each team, teacher, staff member is recognized in some way.  The PE department helps make our celebrations possible every month.  They help me direct traffic and are the extra set of hands around the organized chaos.  So much of what we do could not be done day in and day out without them.  So while it is better late than never, here is what it means to be enjoying physical activity at school.  Thank you Chris, Jen, Pam, and Tawney!!
