Welcome Back!

Welcome back students. We have a lot of fun, educational, and physically active events planned once again for this school year. The first event will be for the 4th and 5th graders in middle October on a Saturday. The event is the “Bob Cipriano Run” that will be held at Ford Field (Same as Mini-Marian Marathon).

The other big events that we will participate in this year will be “Bowl for Life” K-5 , “Jump Rope for Heart” 2-5, “Mini-Martian Marathon” K-5, “Aces” K-5, and Field Day K-5.

This year in the gym with the addition of 15 more minutes of physical education time per class there will be increased time spent on both fitness and sportsmanship related activities to make our games more enjoyable for all.

I look forward to another successful year at both DuVall and Whitmore-Bolles.

Bowl for Life 2012-2013

Both DuVall Elementery and Whitmore-Bolles recently completed the Bowl for Life program in their physical education classes. All the groups had great fun and gained some knowledge about how to bowl.
