Physical Education…AKA– Movement, Inc -

Please be sure to have your child bring tennis shoes on gym day. Flip Flops and Sandals are unacceptable. They are an injury risk.

I use a card system for discipline. A green card means that the child did outstanding, a yellow card is a time out for not using ROARS behavior, and a red card means they must sit out the class.

We follow the SPARK curriculum at Hutchinson Elementary for physical Education. SPARK is an acronym for Sport, Play, and Active, Recreation for Kids. The focus is really on physical activity and movement by using lead up games and drills.

visual arts class with ms cheryl carnicelli
Visual Arts Class with Ms. Cheryl Carnicelli

In art class, students have the opportunity to think creatively, solve problems, visually communicate and critically observe and interpret the world around them. I hope to instill an appreciation for the richness, beauty and meaning that the arts bring to our lives.

I emphasize careful use and cleanliness with all art media. However, in their joyful and meaningful creative activities, students sometimes soil their clothing. With this in mind, please dress your child appropriately or send an apron or art shirt with your child on art days. I’m looking forward to a fabulous year teaching your children!
