Staying Connected…During this Challenging Time

Pashley Polar Bears…I wanted to let you know how much you are missed.

Our school is quiet, too quiet.

I miss seeing you as you pass by my office door every morning.  I miss saying “GOOD MORNING” to you all.

Let’s stay connected using this PE Blog.

  • Comment on how you are doing
  • what you are doing
  • what you will look forward to when we are back at school!!

I will share my time away from you,  as well.  Keep checking in with my posts.


Take time to follow our online suggested PE lessons, and PLEASE get outside for fresh air!

 The days are getting longer and the sun continues to shine brighter.

We will and CAN do this together.

We love to invite female role models to join us for Physical Education Class.  Today our guest is also a HERO.

New York State Trooper “Mac” talked to us about having our inner voice, being strong on the inside and out, and to pay attention with our senses.  She also shared how important FITNESS is to her career!! Trooper Mac is the BEST!!

Our guest today was Trooper Mac.  She shared stories of strength, courage and determination to be a New York State Trooper.  She reinforced that girls can be anything they work hard at!  Trooper Mac is a great role model for our Pashley girls.

We also watched the YouTube video, “Throw Like a Girl”…..It was an empowering physical education class for sure….

What did you remember most from Trooper Mac’s visit?

Happy Camper



Just picked up my son from a one week overnight camp, in the Adirondack’s.  The camp was all about the environment, nature and the great outdoors.  His favorite part was canoeing several lakes and then sleeping overnight on one of the islands.  Since he has been back, I’ve learned some games from his camp too.   Can’t wait until we play “Salmon Run”!!

Did you attend any camps this summer?

What was your favorite activity?

Stay Hydrated When You’re Playing Outside


With all this warm and sometimes HOT weather…are you drinking enough water/fluids??

Research shows that your heart rate increases eight beats per minute for every liter of sweat lost during exercise.   This increased heart rate, combined with inefficient cooling, causes your temperature to elevate. This not only compromises performance, but can lead to heat illness as well.

Most experts recommend drinking at least a cup (four to 10 ounces) of water every 15 minutes of exercise.  That gives your body the fluid to “sweat out” and thus cool off your body.

 What do you usually bring to drink when you play sports?
