Health and Physical Education
Welcome to my new classroom website!
Physical Education 5th-8th Grades
There was a new activity added to physical education called "Hoops -4-Heart." This involved our students teaming up with the American Heart Association to raise money for and awareness of those with heart conditions. Students learned that by exercising and eating healthy, their hearts will work better and by spreading this information to others, it could possibly save lives. After collecting donations for 2 weeks, students play in a 3-on-3 basketball tournament during physical education class.
