Assessment of skills

Testing skills in PE Class for all grades will start in a couple of weeks.  Students can practice most of their skills at home.  These are the skills that will be tested in each grade:

K, 1st and 2nd grades – overhand throw and skipping  “T”, “L”,  BIG step, turn and throw!

3rd grade – catching fly balls

4th grade – sit and reach flexibility and overhand throw  “T”, “L”, BIG step, turn and throw, tickle!

5th – sit and reach flexibility and batting

4th and 5th grade classes are strongly encouraged to practice their stretching at home every night – just like homework!  The good thing about stretching – you can do it infront of the TV, or whild listening to music or practice with your friends outside on the grass.

What’s going on!

Fourth and 5th grade classes, and some 3rd grade classes will start their PE class by jogging outside. Even though it might seem longer, they will be jogging the same amount of time outside as inside, PLUS they get to breath fresh air and feel the warm sun!

Please remember that when the PE Classes come outside they are in PE class, not at recess.  When they are jogging on the track – PLEASE STAY OFF THE TRACK – so they don’t jog into you!!  When they are playing on the field, PLEASE KEEP YOUR DISTANCE, so as not to disturb their PE Class activity.  Thanks!

Swimming

Well, our second time in the swimming pool has been fun for all!   Students were so excited to get back into the pool again and get swimming.  I hope you all will try to take swimming lessons over at the Civic Center or through the Dearborn Community Education Program.  Michigan has so many bodies of water that it is so important that all children learn to swim.

The Kids Martian Marathon was this past weekend!  What a fun time!  The weather was great – sunny and a little cool.  The 1.2 mile course started with a little hill climb and then around the park, back into the park, up a larger hill, down that hill and then down and around  to the finish line!!!

There were 25 runners from Henry Ford!  Abdo Alasaadi from Mrs. Hammoud’s class came in first place of all of the Henry Ford Runners.  Great Job!

A HUGE THANK YOU to Mrs. Spencer and Ms. McCormick who helped at the race; handing out t-shirts and bandanas, taking pictures, answering questions and getting the runners to the start line.
