Mrs. Emerling (Phys. Ed)
Over the winter we will be starting with volleyball (younger grades beach balls over the net) then into our jump rope unit. In late January we will have our annual kick-off for Jump Rope for Heart. I am so excited to participate in this event, last year we placed third in the small school category. I hope you all can continue your generosity in this event, all proceeds go to the American Heart Association. Our jump roping skills will be put to the test on February 12th and 15th when we have our actual jump rope for heart activities in class. I cannot wait to hear some of the jump-roping songs Mrs. Griffin is working on with the students in music class! Please try to have all your donations in before mid-winter break so I can place orders for the gifts students earn for donating. The website is www.heart.org/jump and look for our school name and my name as chairperson.
Also I am looking to update my bulletin board for the winter. Please share your pictures and/or drawings of fun heart-pumping activities you can do over the snowy months of winter. I will post them up on my bulletin board for all to see and get ideas about how to stay fit even when the weather is cold and snowy.
Mrs. Judy Emerling
