Welcome to PE!
I am so excited to see the returning OBES students and meet the new OBES students. I hope everyone has enjoyed summer vacation and is excited for a fantastic 2016-2017 school year. I will be looking for "Superstars" each class who wear sneakers, show great safety during activities, and demonstrate kindness and fair play during class activities. One boy and one girl from each class will be selected each class period, and they will receive a P.E. Superstar Slip. Listed below are this week's planned activities:
Discuss with your student what they learned each day/week in physical education class. Students are great teachers and can bring home many exercises, stretches, games or activities that can be practiced/played at home together.

In kindergarten, students are introduced to basic locomotor and non‐locomotor skills and concepts. Spatial awareness is also presented. Students are introduced to basic physical changes that occur as a result of physical activity. In addition, students learn to follow directions and interact positively with classmates, regardless of personal differences in a physical setting.
First Grade Overview
In first grade, the primary goal is for students to begin to master basic locomotor & non‐locomotor skills & concepts. Spatial awareness will continue to develop. Students are introduced to more physical changes that occur as a result of physical activity. In addition, there is an increased emphasis on following directions and interacting appropriately with classmates regardless of differences in a physical setting.
