Welcome to a new school year! The Sherwood Elementary Physical Education blog can help to keep you up to date on activities going on within our PE classes, intramurals, special events, school sport opportunities and after school activities.
Walking club and Cross Country running will get underway next week. These are great opportunities for your children to be active in a non-competitive or competitive activity. Later this month our school will be participating in the 2017 Terry Fox Run (date to be announced).
The family activity challenge has begun! We are challenging all of our Sherwood School families to get active together. Take a picture of your family (student and at least one other family member) being active (running, biking, hiking, etc) and send it to school via print or email. We will post your picture and enter the student name for some great prizes.
We had a very successful cross country Zone meet at Elliott River School! Everyone did their best and had fun! We have some individual runners and two teams going to the Provincial Championships this weekend in MillRiver. Good luck to everone!
Our school Terry Fox Run was a great success! The rain held off for most of the event and we had great participation by students and staff. Our school Spare Change Day fundraiser was also a great success; we raised $895.00 for the Terry Fox Foundation!!!! Wow! Thank you to all who brought in their spare change, we are excited to forward all of the funds to the Terry Fox Foundation.
Our school Terry Fox Run will take place Friday, September 29th after the afternoon recess. We will begin in the gymnasium and students will then head outside for the run.
This year we are having a “Spare Change Day” with all of the proceeds going to the Terry Fox Foundation. On Friday, September 22nd students can bring a small amount of spare change to school and it will be collected throughout the day.
We have a great group of students participating in cross country running this year!
Cross country practices will run as follows:
Monday/Wednesday (11:15-11:45) – grades 3/4
Tuesday/Thursday (11:15-11:45)- grades 5/6
Friday – 11:15-11:45- open practice for anyone
Our school mini meet will be on October 2nd. Those who qualify to move on and compete at the Zone Cross country meet will bring home permission forms after the mini meet. The Zone meet will be held the morning of October 4th at Elliot River School.
