    Hello Clarence Center Parents and Students!  I will be using my Teacher Webpage to provide activities and continuing physical education while we are off from school.  The links on the left of the page will take you to different videos and sites that can be used for fun, fitness and exercise. I also have a DAILY CALENDAR that lists some fitness activities that the students are familiar with. I will update my Website daily with new activities, and they will appear at the top of the link column.
    I encourage you to keep a "Fitness and Activity Log" to turn into me upon your return to school.  This is a great way to keep track of what you have done!  I have lots of Sports Cards to hand out!!
    At the Primary level, our focus is on Movement and Skills (run, jump, hop right foot, hop left foot, gallop right foot lead, gallop left foot lead, skipping, throwing, catching, kicking and striking)
    These may be activities that you can safely practice.
    At the Intermendiate level, our focus is fitness and skill development. We may be assessing activities such as the 50m dash, 100m Dash, 50m Hurdles, Long Jump, Softball Throw and others when we return.  These may be activities that you can safely practice.
    Have Fun with these activities! Everyone stay on "Starlight", I'll see you soon.
