Our Fit Kid Squad recently had a meeting honoring Veterans Day! We combined the first and fifth grade troops to prepare for the Veterans Day assembly the girls are participating in at school today at Harbor View Elementary School.
The fifth grade girls also learned to dance to the Boogey Woogey Bugle Boy!
Then the girls worked together through an army-like obstacle course complete with hurdles and cones.
Finally, the girls worked on posters for the assembly. The younger ones drew pictures of some of the Olympic sports veterans have competed in as well as other athletic veterans who played professional baseball and golf, including: Preston Griffall- Olympic Luge doubles; Patty Berg- PGA professional golfer in the 1940’s; Christopher Fogt- Olympic bobsledding; and Ted Williams- MLB professional baseball player.
The fifth graders used their new school motto BRAVE (Bold, Respectful, Accountable, Visionary and Empathetic) to write definitions of each of these traits and then to describe how veterans exemplify these virtues. They made posters for each one and will be describing their conclusions to the veterans being honored in their assembly as well as the entire student body at Harbor View. Great job!
