Hello Willard Families,

It’s amazing to think we are already approaching the holidays. I hope this newsletter finds you and your family well. With Thanksgiving coming I just wanted to say how thankful I am to be able to see your children in person in Physical Education this year. I have to say this has lifted my spirits and has made me more optimistic about the future.

Here is what has been happening in your children’s PE class: We recently completed a unit on kicking and soccer skills. During this unit students worked on dribbling, evasion tactics, passing and shooting through various lead-up games. Grades 3-5 culminated this unit playing an actual soccer game. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been playing an invasion/Capture the Flag game call Harry Potter. You may have heard your children talk about it. This game always seems to be one of the favorites here at Willard.

Once we return from a few days off for Thanksgiving we will move onto striking and volleying skills.

As always please continue to ensure that your child comes to school on PE days with appropriate footwear and clothing for movement.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Mr. Germond
