Our annual "Plunge Into Fitness" Challenge sponsored by Raging Waves Waterpark in Yorkville wrapped up with 112 students completing the 25 hour activity challenge and earning a free ticket to Raging Waves this summer! Tickets were distributed to teachers' mailboxes on Friday (4/29) so hopefully you'll see your student's coming home in their backpack soon! Congratulations on a job well done and a BIG thank you to the staff at Raging Waves waterpark for their support in helping maintain physically active lifestyles in our kids.
As some of you may have heard, I will not be returning to teach P.E. in the fall at Fabyan and Heartland. I have accepted the full-time position at Williamsburg Elementary - filling a vacancy due to a retirement. I have traveled between two school buildings for the last fourteen years that I've been in the District. The move to Williamsburg will allow me to teach at one building without having to travel anymore.
While I'm excited to finally call one school, "home", I will miss working with the students, parents and staff that I've become a part of over the years. Thank you for all of the wonderful memories! I trust my work with your students has helped them develop competence and confidence in their physical skills and in turn increased their motivation - ultimately leading them toward increased participation in a healthy, ACTIVE lifestyle!
Yours in health,
