Mrs. Lori Akers

It's great to be back and into the swing of things.  This is a glimpse of what your children will be learning over the next few weeks.  First and second grade students will be learning and practicing fundamental locomotor skills.  This includes walking, running, hopping, jumping, skipping, leaping, sliding and galloping. Practice helps to make movement more fluid and helps student's develop strength and endurance.  The culmination of this unit is Super Mario Day, which is bridging skills with Mario themed activity.
Third through fifth grade students will participate in team building activities including Block Em, All Aboard, Shur-Tee Action and Splat ball.  All team building activities are designed to provide the maximum amount of participation while problem solving and cooperating as a team.  
Beginning the first full week of September we will be heading outside to begin a track and field unit.  This will help us prepare for the 
Elementary Track Meet in October. 

Upcoming Events: 
September 18th- Deadline for Elementary Track and Field Meet Registration
October 9- Elementary Track and Field Meet @High School Stadium Check in beginning @8:30. (Must preregister for this event)

2.  Only a written note will excuse a student from participating in class.  a doctor's not is required for more than two classes.

3.  Students are expected to demonstrate respect, responsibility and be ready to learn.
