PE Update: Fourth Graders Experience the Glory of the Games!

Fourth grade students competed this week in the (epic and glorious) second annual Greek Olympics as a way to prepare their bodies and minds for their upcoming Greek Festival. Students were assigned to city-states and spent time during recent physical education classes practicing a variety of events from the ancient Olympics. Javelins, shot puts, and discus were thrown for distance while the fan-favorite chariot race had students pulling each other up the driveway on a small scooter. All athletes embraced the spirit of the games and displayed excellent acts of sportsmanship! Hurrah!

Third Graders Study Park Accessibility

The third grade dove into a week-long unit looking at accessibility in the United States’ national parks. Students began by learning about different accessibility services The National Parks Service often provides to make the parks accessible. From there the students assumed the role of a National Park Ranger and were assigned the task of surveying a section of trail in “Lone Tree Hill National Park” (the woodlands behind BDS). They made observations about any existing accessibility services and will be making recommendations about how the trail could be made accessible.
