My Project

My students are always so excited to come to PE! They can never wait to see what activity we'll get up to, and they always dive right in so enthusiastically!

Volleyball teaches kids teamwork, collaboration, coordination, and strategy.

It is a sport that can be enjoyed by all levels of athletic ability together, and one that rewards more than just brute strength. Kids have to work together to get the ball over the net as a team, verbally call out commands to direct each other, and then get active as they jump to block and hit.

I am excited to add volleyball to the list of sports we can offer. To make that happen, I've requested the nets and volleyballs we need so that all the kids can be active as we play.

Thank you very much for your support. I really appreciate it.

Mr. Struempf
Grades 3-5
