Daily warm-up exercises target each specific test and help to advance student skill along with preparing them for daily physical activity. PE units focus on fundamental skills that every physically literate person should possess and challenge students to learn more about the importance of physical activity and overall well being. It is also a great way to socially interact, work with others, and learn to be a part of a team. Students conclude this unit with a personal reflection which helps them identify goals for the year. Next Unit: Team Soccer.
On another note, the STEM Cross Country Season began the first week of September. The 53 athletes from STEM represented our school well at several of the season meets. It has been a great opportunity to see how students from STEM measure up to other students from other school as well as those at different Waukesha middle schools. Overall, our team has been "running away" with fun this season and working hard to improve their times with every meet. The season concludes on October 10th at the Waukesha Expo Grounds where the 2018 STEM runners will have the opportunity to show what they can do.
Activities to come: Dodgeball tournament, Hoop Shoot Competition, Badminton Tournament, Lightning (Knock out) Tounament, and the annual Student vs Staff Basketball game. Listen for the announcements and be sure to join the fun.
