Physical education overview
Dear Parents and Students,
I am writing to give you some information that will help us have a great year in C.E.S. physical education. My focus is to help children develop greater strength of character, mind, and body as active learners. I love creating a learning environment where students are learning about a wide variety of topics while enjoying being physically active. I do a lot of physical education enhancement programs. I hope that we can work together on some of these truly special programs. Please help your child to be prepared for physical education by reviewing this letter with them and reminding him/her to wear sneakers on days that he/she has physical education. Listed below is my e-mail and phone number. Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do to help. I am looking forward to developing a strong relationship between myself and the families of C.E.S. Willington PTA 5k & Fun Runs will be on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.
1) Develop strength of character, mind and body.
2) Better understand and become more capable of doing a wide variety of activities.
3) To become more curious about strength and physical adventures.
4) Enjoy being physically active.

Pal is a koosh sent home with students. He goes home with my students with his journal and a book. Students do a variety of physical activities with it. Afterwards, they read to him and write about their adventures with Pal. This program is for grades 2 and 3.
Recess Games Day:
We will have a special day that will focus on teaching students games they could play during recess. Volunteers will be needed for this event.
