Hello My Name Is...

Welcome Back!!!

Hello everyone! My name is Mrs. Cook and this is my 11th year here at H.E.S. I am excited to begin our school year and look forward to teaching you! I hope to incorporate a variety of new games and fitness activities into my P.E. program; if you have any suggestions please drop them off in the suggestion box!! I am always looking for new ideas : ) Games help children learn important skills such as problem solving, sharing, following rules and directions and being a team player. Aside from games, students will be introduced to sports for recreational purposes while developing sportsmanship qualities.  These skills will help develop agility, balance, cardio-vascular endurance, flexibility and strength.
