Inside Mrs. Schmidt's PE and Spanish classes

What's Happening in PE

Hope everyone is staying safe!! I miss seeing everyone!! I hope you are able to stay active during this time at home.  Enjoy running, skipping, galloping and jumping outside.  Practice catching, throwing and kicking with your family.  

The students enjoyed Jump Rope for Heart!! They raised over $9,000.00.  They were excited to learn how to take care of their hearts.  The students enjoyed collecting donations for the American Heart Association in honor of Asher Pleasants.  I am still waiting for all the prizes to come in.  I will let you know when they arrive. 

Please encourage the students to stay active!
