PM Akin Elementary started a garden club this year to help teach students that they can be active, as well as grow vegetables and enjoy nature. Students have had a blast learning about helpful critters in the garden, how to plant and care for flowers, how to harvest seeds from their salad vegetables, how to plan for spring flowers in the fall, and how to maintain flower beds and gardens all year.

Two weeks every year the gym at Kimball turns into a roller rink! Some students are learning this lifetime physical activity for the first time and some are regulars at the roller rink, but either way roller blading is a hit! The students also learn about the importance of safety as they all wear protective gear. It's so fun to watch them overcome their struggles and work to master and enjoy this lifetime skill.

This year we tried something new. We opted for field day yoga to wind down and fruit tasting in place of snowcones. These were BIG hits with our students, parents, and teachers. The fruit was delicious and the kids enjoyed trying something new.

Yoga was the BEST way to wind down from all the activity during our exciting field day. Read more

We started our first after school running club in the fall. Each student runs laps to get a marathon. They add up their laps and I convert them to miles and we keep track of them along the way. After the Christmas break our students started reaching their marathons. The confidence and endurance skyrocketed at that point. They are eager and ready to join our running club. I filmed several videos of our students to share on our morning announcements and now I have just about the whole school wanting to be in the running club. I love the excitement that our kiddos have for staying active. Read more
