In September 46% of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders (86/165) scored in the “healthy fitness zone”. ie. 15 for girls and 21 for boys.
In November 66% of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders (109/165) scored in the healthy fitness zone.
My goal is to get this number up to 75% by the end of the year. With 100% of our students improving their scores.
The test is called The Pacer Test. You can learn more about it about www.woodmerepe.com
Congratulations to Woodmere students for all the running, walking, jogging, biking, etc. you did for the month of October. We placed 2nd in the Fire Up Your Feet October Challenge and earned a $1,000 prize.

We are currently doing a sport stacking unit in PE. Sport stacking is an exciting sport where students stack and unstack 12-specially designed cups (Speed Stacks) in predetermined sequences. Students race against the clock for faster times and race against each other in relays.
Sport stacking promotes hand-eye coordination, ambidexterity, quickness, concentration and fitness – plus, students love it! Sport stacking uses both sides of the body and brain developing important skills needed to dribble and shoot a basketball, throw and catch a baseball, play a musical instrument, type on a computer and more. By activating both sides of the brain, students also benefit academically with greater focus and concentration levels.
One of my goals, as a Physical Educator, is to promote activity at home through positive alternatives to computer, television and video game screen time. I believe that sport stacking is a unique, fun and simple activity that motivates kids to get up and move. To help accomplish my goal of keeping kids active and healthy, I invite you and your student to participate in our school Group Order with Speed Stacks
