Physical Education/Swimming News: May 2012
Thank you to all of the parents who have signed up to help out for PE Play Day. PE Play Day is an amazing afternoon for students at Honey Creek. The event starts off with an all school picnic which parents are encouraged to attend, located outside next to the cafeteria. Afterwards we head down to the soccer fields for many different fun and active games. There will be an optional fun run following the games. To finish we will head to the playground for popsicles and pick up. I hope every Honey Creek student will be present to share in the fun!
If you have a student who will be in Middle School next year and is interested in playing field hockey please email me ASAP and let me know. I need to have a rough estimate of the number of players we will have. Field hockey is a great team sport that is offered to both males and females at Honey Creek. It is a great experience to work together as a team, get a lot of exercise and spend time outside. It runs 3 days a week (typically M, T, and Th) for September and October.
In May the PE classes will be wrapping up jump roping (K-3), floor hockey (4-5) and volleyball (MS). We will begin to go outside more and do all of the outdoor games the students love, including: ga-ga, capture the flag, kickball, and ultimate frisbee. In swimming students will continue developing their strokes and stamina. Now is the time to start considering enrolling your student in summer swim lessons. They will be offered here during Honey Creek’s Summer Camp or you can also register through Ann Arbor Rec and Ed.
Lastly, I would like to thank the following people for allowing the MS Swim Elective class to attend the Canham Natatorium in a very successful field trip. Al Waters, Shellee Almquist, Karen Giltrow, Matt Scott, Darnell Talbert, Mario Jordan, Christine Rawak, Tim Donahue, Joanne Barhite, Will Hathaway and Lily Jungan. I would also like to thank the students for doing an amazing job representing Honey Creek!
