Happy March from the PE Department. With the weather we will be spending our PE time both inside and outside. Hopefully if a sunny, nice day occurs we will be outside for the days’ lesson. Please remind students to dress appropriately for class. Students should wear tennis shoes (sneakers) to class to prevent slipping on the multipurpose room floor or the outside blacktop. Thank you so much in advance for your help with this.
We are kicking off March with our Jump Rope for Heart event on Friday, March 17th. Every Tyler Family has a chance to be a heart hero. Look for the flyers and collection envelopes coming home on March 17th. There are many ways to donate and help our school as well as families all around that are dealing with heart disease. Our goal this year is 5 thousand dollars. The money raised will help with research to battle heart disease and help families in need. Thank you for all that you do to help support the physical education program here at Tyler.
I am excited to announce that on Saturday, April 29th Tyler will be participating in our Penny Health Fair! The event includes various activities for families. All around the school we will have different local businesses promoting their services. We will have a make and take snack, DDR and a chance to practice Plus 5 Fitness. We will have a silent auction, food trucks and fun family activities that all can participate in! The day promises to be one filled with fun and fitness! Come dressed to be active and have a good time!
K, 1st and 2nd Grades:
The month of March brings jump rope, fitness, dance and basketball to grades K, 1 and 2. The students will be working on the objectives of skilled movement and movement principles and concepts within these units. We are learning about what we can do to keep our bodies in motion and be healthy active Tomcats!
3rd, 4th and 5th Grades:
The upper grades will continue to work on the objective of movement principles and concepts. For the month March, the students in the upper grades will be working on jump rope, dance, gymnastics and basketball. As grade levels we are continuing to work on being responsible, respons-able students while in PE.
