We are almost there! Summer is just around the corner and I trust this year has been a productive one for you and your students. I hope everyone gets a chance to recharge and relax this summer. I am looking forward to attending/presenting at a few conferences in Iowa, Kentucky, and North Carolina and connecting with other PE professionals. I’m also planning to be out on the water doing a lot of fishing! Before we kick off our break, here are a few things pertaining to Northern District...
We are currently looking for members to get involved in Northern District as part of our Leadership Team. All you need is an interest in serving. We have a fun bunch of people to work with and we get together typically once every month or two (summers off) to plan our major events such as our Social Event at the IAHPERD Conference in November, coordinating the Spring Workshop at Judson University in February, and reviewing grant proposals in April. We work together and share the workload so you’re never overburdened with a huge time commitment. Right now, we are looking for a President-Elect. If you’re interested in this position or just want to get involved in other ways, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also want to announce the winners of our Northern District grant... Rebecca Meyer, from Sleepy Hollow Elementary, was awarded $550 for her proposal on “Incorporating Breakout EDU in PE.” We also had Staci Hale, from Kingston Elementary School, win $592.96 for equipment to get “More Minutes of Movement in PE.” Congratulations to both Rebecca & Staci for their dedication to their students and the great work they do with kids every day. Can’t wait to hear how these funds benefitted your program! To see a full list of past winners, visit our website: https://ndiahperd.weebly.com/grants.html
Finally, we want to thank our friend, Jean Williams (Wasco Elementary in St. Charles) for her many years of volunteer service to Northern District as Treasurer. We wish you all the best and hope you enjoy your retirement! We will miss you!
