Elementary Students (K – 4)
Elementary students enjoyed the Halloween Unit during the October months. We played games such as Ghost in the Graveyard which focused on our throwing and catching skills. Silly tag games such as Witch’s Candy, Trick or Treat, and I’m a Little Ghost Tag. The K – 3 students finished up the unit with a Glow Party. The lights were turned off in the gym and students rotated through different Halloween themed stations working on different skills – scooter through the spooooooooky cave, bowl the pumpkin ball at the ghosts, bounce the eyeball into the bucket, and bop the hanging ghost.
Grades 5 & 6 spent time in the Handball/Hand Hockey unit. Focus was on both team work and hand eye coordination. Teams are often changed up to allow for different leadership styles to emerge and ensure a balance of team play. I enjoyed watching the students develop their strategy during these games as well as watching them settle disputes peer to peer in a Christian manner.
Junior High Students
Football was introduced to 7th Grade students and focused on the basic elements of the game such as basic plays, positions, and simple rules to advance the ball. 8th grade moved forward from last year in the unit and started developing some more difficult plays and striving for more complete passes.
Students in Grades 1 – 5 have continued to build on their Running Challenge. Our school goal is to run for 5 minutes without stopping. We are currently at 3:00 minutes and it shows in the students stamina and their ability to maintain a tempo pace during class.

Physical Education – Having Fun While Staying Fit
Thank you for stopping by to visit my page. I’m glad you are interested in our physical education program.
After each unit finishes, I will post information about what your child was doing in class so be sure to check back here periodically to see how much fun fitness can be in p.e.
My number #1 rule in gym is safety. This means all students must be dressed and ready for gym in the gym uniform and proper gym shoes and follow gym rules. Parents and students can access information about the gym uniform by clicking on this link. Students who do not wear a school uniform will be issued an out of uniform slip that will need to be signed and returned by parents. These forms can be viewed by clicking here – Gym Uniform Form . The forms do vary by grade level as it is an expectation that older students begin to make responsible decisions for themselves.
My number #2 rule is have fun. Each class is created with maximum participation in mind for all the students. Safety rules are always covered for each game/skill activity and I make it a practice to observe and move around the gym and adjust and redirect students as needed.
I value the uniqueness that each student and class brings to the gym and I enjoy being able to craft my class to best meet their needs.View More
