Flames of Frey………AIM HIGH!

We are looking forward to providing your child with an exciting and rewarding Physical Education program.  Students will have PE twice per week.  Please see the Specials Schedule for your child’s PE days.

For your child’s safety, we require students wear athletic shoes to PE.  Students who do not have appropriate shoes (open-toed shoes, shoes will heels, boots, sandals, or Crocs) will be unable to participate in PE.

If your child has any ongoing health concerns or restrictions that we need to be aware of, please send a detailed note with instructions for their class participation limitations.

Fitnessgram and Bowling

K – 3 students will practice their underhand rolling skills this week.  Students will work to add the number of pins knocked down and complete a 100s chart.

4th and 5th grade students will finish their Fitnessgram testing this week.

Fitnessgram Testing and Assessments

We have started our Fitnessgram testing.  Grades 4 and 5 will complete the full bank of tests with results sent home at the end of the semester.

Our K-3 will be learning how to play a hula hoop tag game as we assess their locomotor movements.

Battleship

I hope everybody had a healthy and active break!  After working our legs for the past few weeks, we are now going to work our upper body and practice our throwing skills.   All grade levels will play a version of Battleship.

JRFH THIS WEEK!!!

Students are so very excited to show off their jumping skills.  We have done partner jumps, jump bands, double dutch, short and long rope skills.   I know the students will LOVE their jumping time on Thursday and Friday!

Jump Rope For Heart

Frey is joining 32,000 schools nation-wide to host a Jump Rope for Heart event. Through Jump Rope For Heart kids learn jump rope skills, how their heart works and raise money to help kids with special hearts.

 

Students will have fun, learn how to stay healthy and make a difference in the lives of others! Money raised during this event goes directly to the American Heart Association and funds are used to help kids across the nation that are born with heart-related illnesses.

 

Registration and donation information has been sent home with students.  You can register your student on-line at heart.org/jump.  No money is to be sent to school until the day of the event.

 

3rd, 4th and 5th Grades – Thursday, February 15th

K, 1st and 2nd Grades – Friday, February 16th

Fitnessgram Practice/ Jumping

Our 3-5 students will learn all about Fitnessgram testing this week.  They will practice some of the fitness tests.
