Physical Education:  Moving does a body good!

  The students in all Pre-K classes will work with their theme of the week, ocean, and try a hula hoop review!!   The students in Grades K-6 will play the strategy game Roadblock.  Kindergarten will also have their Field Day on Thursday!  (All of our Field Days this year will last about an hour and will consist of some wacky activities!!)

The activities will help the students to develop muscular endurance, muscular strength, muscular coordination, cardiovascular endurance, agility and body control.

Teamwork and cooperation are stressed in all classes.   We observe the state recommended 6 foot social distancing rule for Physical Education in all classes.

Rising New York Road Runners

The students in Grades Kindergarten through Six are participating in the “Rising New York Road Runners” program again this year.  This is a free program sponsored by the New York City Marathon.  The activities and laps the students take part in during Physical Education class count as movement and mileage for the program.  The students receive incentive awards for achieving designated mile levels.  The goal of the program is to encourage the students to be active.  The students work very hard to achieve their miles!

The students have logged over 2024 miles this school year!!  Most of the students have achieved their marathon goal of 26.2 miles!!  Congratulations!!

Library:  Ready!!  Set!!  Read!!  It’s a great way to grow your brain!! 

The Pre-K students will work with their theme of the week, ocean, and try a lower case letter review activity.  Grades Kindergarten through 2 will discuss the term periodical.   The students will be given a periodical to keep compliments of the Troy Public Library.   This week’s story is  Lola and Tiva: An Unlikely Friendship by Craig Hatkoff. 

All library books are due back this week.  The students will not be checking out any more books this school year.

Health:  Be a “smile spreader”!!! 

The students in Grades 3 through 6 have finished their exploration of the Muscular System.   This week will find them doing a quick overview of the Circulatory System.   Terms to be introduced include artery, vein, capillary, blood vessel and circulation.

Here’s to a wonderful year full of learning and discovering!!

Thank you for sharing the gift of your children!!  They are such a blessing!!
