School Year PE Curriculum!

Greetings Chargers!

This year I have many fun and exciting activities planned! The scholars have just completed lacrosse and are now moving into Hockey. We are building the foundation for more challenging activities as the year progresses and more complicated lessons. These activities will both challenge and build confidence in the students. The following is the PE curriculum map. It is important to note that not all these activities will be included this year and are in no particular order. I look forward to the rest of the year and Go Chargers!

Start of the 2018-2019 School year!

Greetings Chargers,

Welcome back to school! My name is Coach Gethings, I will be the 2018-2019 Second-Fifth Grade PE Teacher. I am very excited for this opportunity! This will be my second year at Arete. This year, the scholars will be learning many different sports and activities. Lacrosse will be a new sport introduced this year along with fitness ladders. Both these activities will build coordination and motor skills. The scholars will also be learning in the early part of the year about various muscle groups and bones. It is my goal that the scholars will improve in all sports that we do and I know that they will rise to the occasion! I look forward to the upcoming school year and Go Chargers!

Best regards,
Coach Gethings
