Welcome Back!

The summer is winding down and I’m excited to see all your smiling faces as you come into the building next week. Most the things will stay the same, however we will be adding a new component to P.E. this year and that is Fitness Fridays! Usually on Fridays you will be coming to P.E. for the second time that week so we will focus on a different component of fitness each week. Sometimes it might be Yoga (flexibility, muscular endurance), sometimes it could be CrossFit (cardio respiratory endurance, muscular strength, & muscular endurance). What ever it is be prepared to work hard and have fun sweating!

Congratulations Andrew!

Andrew Solorio was the 1st Bobcat EVER to reach 100 on his Pacer Test. He has worked hard to achieve this goal and was extremely excited to accomplish this feat. Mrs. Wells class was so supportive as they watched and cheered him on; when he finished they rushed to him like he was their hero! Andrew you are an incredible athlete and person; you inspire so many people each day with your kindness and work ethic. I’ve been lucky to have you be a student and look forward to attending my first game at Duke when you get there.

Fitness Path

It has been a long time coming but I’m excited to say that construction on our fitness path has begun and will actually be done by next week! It has been amazing to see the hard work of so many turn into dollars for us to build this track. Most schools would never be able to afford such a luxury but you all earned this. I can see in your smiles how much this means to all of you and I’m so happy to be able to help bring it to Van Buren!
