When: Friday, March 10
Where: Cater Gym
Time: 7:10 am-7:40 am--Come and go as needed.
What: We will introduce you to cardio drumming! Fun! Fun!
(Don’t let the word “cardio” scare you. It’s not that intense. You
can do as much or as little as you need to do.)

When you arrive, there will be a sign-in sheet outside the gym. When you enter the gym, grab a set of drum sticks and find an exercise ball. You can share with your student or use your own ball, depending on how many come. This is a chance for you to spend some time with your student and see some of the fun ways we exercise in PE class.
We will dismiss promptly at 7:40 am so that students are not tardy to class.
