The physical education staff would like to welcome back all of our students! We hope everyone had a safe, healthy holiday season.
Energy around the gym was terrific! It's always tough to go back to work or school after a long layoff, but you wouldn't have guessed that today. All students jumped right back into the swing of things. Students in Coach Bruce/Coach Kiefer classes began their basketball unit and Coach Haller/Coach Conrow students began volleyball.
Students in grades 1-5 learned correct form for a "bump pass" in volleyball. Students in these grades are presently using beach balls. Students in grade 5 will eventually advance to a harder "modified" version of a volleyball. Students will be taught the "system" for sending the ball back over the net. This system is bump-set-spike. The hope for 5th grade students is to learn and try this system. The hope for the younger grades is to simply use three hits before sending it over. We want them to try to get away from just hitting it over on the first touch. Students in kindergarten were introduced to the concept of volleyball using balloons.
Ask your child to demonstrate a bump pass!
