Here we are at the mid point of the school year.  It amazes me how fast time flies!  We are beginning a new unit on bullying this week and hope to get started on our anti-bullying skits early next week.  Work on these will continue on Monday and hopefully we will begin presenting on Tuesday.  Remember to bring any props if you need them.  Let's start the new semester off on the right foot!!!

We are fast approaching the end of the semester.  There are a number of students that need to complete make ups on their fitness gram tests.  We will be using our usual "Game Day" Friday to get those completed.  Also....if you have missed a day of PE, be sure to get your make up forms submitted to Mr. Auckland.  The second half of the year is already upon us.  Time flies when you're having fun!!!  Keep up the good work everyone!!!
