We are pleased to announce all first and second grade students participated in a Bicycle Training and Safety unit during their PE classes in April. Students brought their own properly fitted helmet from home. For fitting tips you may choose to visit: www.helmets.org/fit.htm Instructional areas had daily targets including: Bicycle Safety, proper helmet fitting, safe-handling skills, coordination, balance and motor planning. A special thanks to the parent volunteers that guided students in small groups around school property and Crowley Park. This was made possible through grant funding from the GEF.
Our CHAMPS target for the month of May is: I can use friendly and respectful language towards my friends and teachers.
