Principal's Message

February 24th

​Dear Parents,
 
As you may have heard, one of the most popular Phys Ed activities is currently happening in gym class:  gymnastics! Altadore is very fortunate to have a variety of gymnastics equipment, and our climber is always a highlight for the students.  Safety is a top priority at all times, and becomes the guiding focus during the gymnastics unit. Students begin on the floor and mats and once they have demonstrated their competency in this area, are able to progress to higher mats, beams, trestles, and eventually the climber.  
 
Our school’s focus has been to “Embrace the Challenge”, and the gymnastics unit allows students to demonstrate this each gym class:  each student is able to modify their activity on each piece of equipment, ensuring each student feels safe, yet challenged. On the uneven bars, we might see some students suspend themselves, others scurry across them like sloths, and still others inverting themselves and touching the ground with their hands while suspended by their legs.  Each student determines his/her own level of comfort and is encouraged to challenge themselves accordingly.  
 
We love to see the enthusiasm of the students during gymnastics, and have enjoyed watching them navigate through “Mission Impossible”.   We have our final week of gymnastics this week, and look forward to seeing the growth that the students have made over the past month.  
 
If you have any questions or need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us!
