Welcome to OIMS Physical Education
Hello Huskies! Welcome back to school! We will be staying safe and healthy in the OIMS gymnasium by masking up (we will give mask breaks of course) and sanitizing our hands when we enter and exit the gym. Can't wait to see you all again on September 8th!
What's cool and new at OIMS PE?!?!?!!?
We are excited to get back to our regular PE curriculum! We're hoping to include Jump Rope for Heart, Fitness Stations, a recreational games unit, Frisbee golf, snowshoeing and so much more!
Have you ever wondered what some of the terms and words we use in PE every day means? Thanks to our new friends, we're here to help you learn even more in class! Go check out these PE Vocabulary words and make some PE flash cards. You never know what PE words might make our word wall this week!
Thank you so much Erin and Ally!
