Blessings coming from the COVID climate must be treasured due to their frequency (or lack thereof). We witnessed one here this week at school! Mrs. Richter has been doing a great job of getting kids outside for PE! The only days we have been inside for PE are the few when we have had rain for the most part.
The excitement here took off when children began to arrive for school. The colorful and huge sleds, snow pants, boots, etc. created an excitement from the beginning. Mrs. Richter had extra supplies on hand for those who forgot, so there was not a sad face in the crowd. The children deposited their supplies in the gym right away in the morning, where the colorful gear awaited PE time.
Almost everything is more fun in a group!
In the note sent home to let parents know and to remind children to bring gear, Mrs. Richter apologized in advance for sending home a bag of wet clothes. Our current special rotation has PE in grades two and three. We will see if we can get anyone else in for a day when the snow is on the ground, or if the Good Lord will send more snow for our next PE rotation group. If not they are all “warmed up” for a real Snow Day!
Blessed Christmas to you all!
