SPECIAL AREA UPDATES

PE

2nd Graders have been doing a fantastic job in PE so far this year.  Due to construction, they will not swim during the fall this year. They will participate in the swim unit during the spring. Mrs. Coffey’s class has just begun an Adventure Education Unit with Coach Myers. Miss Crawford’s class is working on a Throwing Unit with Coach Long. Students will be working on throwing and catching skills and applying those skills to game play. Ms. Lane’s class is participating in a Volleying and Striking Unit with Coach Roberts.  We are proud of our 2nd graders and the early progress they are making so far this year.
