RPE students in K-1-2 have been learning physical education skills such as bending, stretching, jumping, hopping, twisting and turning.  These skills are essential building blocks to more advanced skills.  Students designed a series of hula hoops to hop through and vertical hoops to climb through.

RPE’s 3rd, 4th & 5th graders are mastering the art of juggling during health & fitness class.  Using juggling scarves, the students learned the proper technique for juggling two scarves with one hand; some were able to work on the challenge of juggling three scarves.  Juggling is a great way to improve focus and concentration as well as hand-eye coordination.
