Welcome Spring! We are FINALLY moving into the spring months here in the PE Department. Hopefully, the weather will work with us to we can start moving PE classes outside. Please remind students to dress appropriately for class. Students should wear tennis shoes (sneakers) to class so they can fully participate in a safe manner. Thank you so much in advance for your help with this.
The Tyler Tomcat’s Mileage Club has started up again during recess. Each student can work towards a twinkle toe and after 10 twinkle toes, students earn a special running token. Keep up the great work at getting physically fit Tomcats!
I am excited to announce that on Friday, April 28th we will be holding a Bike Rodeo here at Tyler. Our goal is to encourage more students to be active while learning basic bicycle safety, maintenance and some rules of the road. We are partnering with Endorphin Fitness of Prince William County, a local cycling and triathlon coaching company which specializes in working with youth Permission/registration forms will be sent home the week after spring break so be on the look-out. You must be pre-registered to attend this event. If you are planning to allow your student to ride a bike at any time this year, we highly recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity.
K, 1st and 2nd Grades:
The month of April brings basketball and fitness to grades K, 1 and 2. The students will be working on the objectives of skilled movement and movement principles and concepts within this unit. Keep an eye out for our Tyler basketball players and all the skills they can demonstrate!
3rd, 4th and 5th Grades:
In the upper grade classes for April, we will be concentrating on fitness activities that will prepare us for our spring round of fitness testing. Gymnastics and dance will get us through this month. We will be trying our hardest and doing our best to achieve our wellness goal this year for Tyler and improve our fitness scores all around. As grade levels we are continuing to work on being responsible, respons-able students while in PE.
