My name is Barb Carlson and I am a wife, mother, and part-time primary Physical Education Teacher. At Des Moines Elementary we have F-U-N in the G-Y-M ! In P.E. class “friends help friends”, everyone is a learner everyone is a teacher, and everyone is successful. This school year we will move, explore, play, develop our skills, build our vocabulary, assess fitness, and encourage one another in a safe and positive environment. Games and skills lead into individual, team, and recreational sports. The goal is to promote a desire for lifelong health and fitness. Our P.E. Guidelines are the school-wide ABC’s.
A. ALWAYS TRY
B. BE RESPECTFUL AND RESPONSIBLE
C. COOPERATE WITH OTHERS
I look forward to partnering with you throughout your child’s growth and development. Please encourage sixty minutes of play a day with a variety of opportunities and experiences to explore and enjoy physical movement. Let your child see you having fun and that will be contagious. Let’s have a great adventure as we learn and grow together!
