A Message from the Teacher
Welcome to the P.S. 184 Health and Physical Education webpage!
I will be contributing to this webpage to keep all of you up to date with the exciting new things that your students are learning in Physical Education and the opportunities available to them outside of the classroom. I am looking to a wonderful rest of the year ahead.
– Miss Drauch
“Physical activity is critical to the development and maintenance of good health. The goal of physical education is to develop physically educated individuals who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity.”
I am excited to announce that our school has once again been awarded the School Wellness Grant for school year 2019-2020. Having consulted with our G.O., the students have decided that they would like to fund a K-5 Track & Field afters chool program. This will begin in February and run until the end of the year with sessions for grades K & 1, 2 & 3, and 4 & 5.
This January and February we will be starting our annual Kids Heart Challenge Fundraiser Event. Fundraising packets will be sent home with the students and will contain information on how to sign up online or accept cash/check donations. Our culminating event will take place, very fittingly, on Friday, February 14th.
Attention 3rd & 4th grade families: Pamphlets were sent home with information on the “Ski NY Free for Kids Passport Program.” This is a wonderful opportunity to expose the children to a winter sport that they may not always have access to learn. For more information please visit www.iskiny.com.
As part of our wellness incentive, grade K-2 classes will partake in a “Healthy Snack Challenge.” Students will have the opportunity to bring in healthy snacks to school to enjoy during their snack time. The first class to reach 50 healthy snacks per week will be awarded an additional Physical Education class during STAR period with Miss Drauch.
