For the last few weeks, our students in all grades have received nutrition lessons in the gymnasium. The students have learned how to identify the five major food groups. In addition, we’ve had discussions about food allergies, vegan/vegetarians and go vs slow foods. We’ve used curriculum from choosemyplate.gov/ and healthteacher.com.
In addition to nutritional lessons, students have continued practicing for running programs such as Track & Field and Mighty Milers. The students in 1-103 and 1-141 are close to completing their individual goals of running a total of 13 miles by the end of the school year in PE. For their hard work and perseverance, they received their Mighty Milers T-shirts this week. The students in 5-218 participated in a track meet on April 28th at Icahn Stadium. We had several top performances out of this group. Our next meet will be held on May 12th at Icahn Stadium. Go Lab!!!!!!
In the next few weeks, students in K, 1 and 2 will be participating in the spring PE soccer unit. The 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will be playing speedball and team handball in their PE teams.
