News from PE

During grades K, 1 and 2 physical education classes, students flew their hula hoop space ships all around our solar system.  They stopped their space ships at the sun and all 8 planets to review some facts they learned in science.  We even visited Pluto and the newly discovered dwarf  "Pink Planet".   Thank you to Mrs. Borst's 1st grade class for teaching us about the Pink Planet.
