Track is back!!!!

Our track season is off to a running start! We had our first meet today at Icahn Stadium in Randalls Island. Our students in 5-220 and 4-243 persevered through wind, light rain and cold temperatures to come out ahead of the pack! The entire team looked impressive in this meet and should be commended for their work. We have two more developmental meets on April 28th and May 12th.  We look forward to continued hard work and dedication from the team.

Its PE with Mr. G!!!

In Physical Education, we’ve discussed flexibility and the importance of stretching before and after physical activity. Students have learned a variety of yoga poses such as the downward dog, child pose, tree pose and butterfly. Students have been leading the stretches and counting up to 10 or 15 in a variety of languages. In addition to developing flexibility, students have participated in track and field activities such as long distance runs, sprints, relays, hurdles, long jump and shot. Finally, we practiced deep breathing exercises that are meant to calm the mind and body.
