Woodmere Students Improve Their Fitness Levels

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

Opportunity for Speed Stacks Group Order

Dear Famiies,

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.  IMG_1447

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. logo_ss_lgTo 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

Miss Hein’s and Mrs. Clark’s Classes Win First Quarter Trophies

A trophy and individual awards were given to the classes that ran the most miles during the 1st quarter of the school year.  One trophy to the top class from the 2nd/3rd grades and another trophy to the top class from the 4th/5th grades.


First Quarter Winners:

2nd/3rd Grade – Miss Heins (377.50 miles with an average of 15.1 miles per student)

4th/5th Grade – Mrs. Clark (503.5 miles with an average of 17.9 miles per student)

Woodmere students have already run 2,500 miles in just the first quarter.  I think a goal of 10,000 miles will definitely be attainable by June of 2016.


As of today 24 students have earned the tshirt (25 miles), 6 students have earned the golden pencil (50 Miles), and 2 students have earned the bracelet (75 miles).

It won’t be long before they make it to 100 miles.

The new quarter for the 100 Mile Club Class Trophy begins on Monday, October 26th.  Quarter 2 will end on January 22nd.   I will tabulate miles for that time period.  Not the entire year.

Great Start to the 100 Mile Club



As of October 15th, 21 students have run more than 25 miles.   Yarili and Bob both have made it to the 75 mile mark already.

Attendance at our Tuesday morning running club has increased each week.  We now have 101 students signed up to run.  I would like to invite families to come and run, walk, or job with your child.

Kindergarten and First Grade students are also invited to come as long as a family member stays with them the entire time.   We run from 7:45-8:30am on the playground.

If you have not filled out a permission slip for your child you can download it here..  Or your child can get it from me during PE

See you on Tuesday mornings.  Each student that attends will receive a free running shirt.
