    Expectations in gym: Distance Learning 2.0:
    1. Tuesday of the week: join Google Meet for sychronous, whole group activity (see times above).
    2. Grades PK-3 & 3/4 Windman:  Complete the task board assigned each day in Seesaw or perform the "Quiet Zone" workout.  Then, "respond" telling me what exercise you did that day to let me know you completed the assignment.
    3. Grades 4 & 5:  Complete all activites in Schoology each day.  Sometimes, this is two assignments per day.


    Expectations in gym: In-person

    1. Safety is most important.  We can't exercise if we are hurt.
    2. Participation.  None of us are good at all things.  In gym, we prioritize effort over skill.  
    3. Respect for others.  In gym no one is more important than anyone else.

    Why exercise?

    Physical activity for children is essential for proper development.  Being physically active has been shown to: improve cognition, improve self esteem, improve behavior in the classroom (Mahar et. al., 2006; Bailey et. al., 2006), improve mental health (ie., depression and anxiety), and decrease the chance a person will be absent from school or sick (Dwyer, 1979) (Basch, 2010).  Students who are more active have been shown to get better grades and get higher test scores.
