What's Happening in Letourneau Physical Education?
Students in grades K-2 are currently developing teamwork and manipulation skills during scooter board activities. They are learning the essential skills to work together as a team as well as the basic principles of balance, support and core strength during scooter board activities.
Students in grades 3-5 are currently learning the essential skills for team play and basic skills needed in order to play football. By the end of this unit students will be able to identify key vocabulary words as well as basic rules for the game of football.

LOOKING AHEAD IN LETOURNEAU PHYS. ED.
Jump Rope and Hoops For Hearts
In the Month of April we will be starting Jump Ropes/Hoops for Hearts. Jump Ropes and Hoops for Hearts is a fundraising event for the American Heart Association. It allows students to learn how to be healthy and stay fit while raising vital funds for heart disease research and education. During this event children will learn physical activities such as jump roping and playing basketball in order to build stamina, confidence, and improve their strength.
