Physical & Health Education

 

This will be an area where any important physical & health education information, including due dates, will be posted throughout the year.

Grade 1-3

-we have offered our students in these grades a challenge to complete a “marathon” by the spring.  They won’t complete 42 kilometers at once, but for each kilometer a child in Grades 1-3 runs between the fall and the spring (both during PE and on their own time), they are to colour in one, sign, or cross out paw print in the document shown in the link below.  This challenge is an optional one for Grades 1-3 students to try, and the class that runs the most kilometres by spring will get an extra PE class where we play a game.

Marathon for Kids
