Welcome Back First Day of PE Will be August 18, 2014

Week 11: Karate and Crab Soccer!!


This week in PE is very unique. We have the owners of Mountain Eagle Karate coming to teach our Kindergarteners and 1st graders all about karate. Many of you may remember them from last year when they came for the older grades.

Mountain Eagle Karate Children’s Program reinforces family values such as honesty, loyalty, integrity, and responsibility, and good manners; and introduces goal-setting. Mountain Eagle Karate Academy children are empowered with greater self-control, discipline, and self-esteem, which are tremendous assets to posses in life and transfer to all areas of life. Mountain Eagle Karate Academy children develop an improved attention span, focus, strength, coordination, and flexibility.

You will be receiving the opportunity to sign your son or daughter up for this wonderful program this week. We will be sending home sign up forms that are due back no later than November 9th as the classes will start November 10th in the gym after school. They will go for two week in the gym and end with a graduation at Mountain Eagle Karate. For more information do hesitate to call or email me. And if you would like more information about Mountain Eagle Karate you can visit their website at www.mountaineaglekarate.com It’s going to be a great week!!

For 2nd- 5th grade we will be playing an old PE favorite crab soccer. This game works on muscular strength and endurance as well as teaching students how to work on a team. All students in class will be in crab position and must try to kick a giant omnikin ball to the other sides of the gym. A team is awarded a point each time they can successfully kick it over the other teams head. It’s going to be great FUN!
