The October weather has been a gift, allowing our physical education classes to soak in the sunshine with outdoor activities. Our pre-kindergarten students did their best bunny, kangaroo, and frog impressions during a “hopstacle course” on Claflin Field.

After bounding over our hurdles, there were a variety of hopping implements to try. The pre-kindergartners rose, or leaped, to the challenge, bouncing their way across the grass to an area full of gold coins that they could return to the bank at the start of the course. Then they were off to the races again, achieving great heights and proving that no ‘hopstacle’ is too large for our energetic friends.
