My Classroom Mission
As students at Lake Norman Elementary, we will come to Physical Education class to exercise, move, and challenge our minds and bodies. These tools will help us become physically fit and guide each of us in reaching our goal of getting in our Healthy Fitness Zone. We can accomplish this by having a positive attitude and coming prepared for class.
"Exercise itself doesn't make us smarter. Instead exercise makes us more able to learn and focus and optimizes the brain for learning."
