Gym News from Mr. Sturm

Welcome Back and Happy New Year!

We will start the new year with a quick review of our “5 for Life” component areas. This will involve discussion and games in these areas, followed by a basketball and nutrition unit.

Nutrition will focus on the food pyramid and games, focusing on the food we eat and their nutritional content.  Basketball for the primary grades will focus on ball handling, passing and shooting, while the intermediate grades will review these skills as they play lead-up games culminating in a basketball game.  My goal is that all students find an activity that they can be successful at.

Finally, if you’re looking for an activity to get more exercise, consider walking to school with your child.  It will give him/her a step up for the day ahead; it will also ease the congestion at “Hay Way”.

Skating in February-more information to follow.
