- 2/23 CDS hosted it's second annual Jumping for Healthy Hearts today, and it was another huge success. The Grade 4's educated us all with their fantastic presentations on health and nutrition. The Grade 3's wowed us with their self-choreographed skipping routine. The Grade 2's taught their Chinese jump rope routines to many young participants. All of the students completed their goal of skipping for an hour straight. Fantastic job everyone. You should be very proud of what you achieved!
- 2/21 Welcome back from the break. I trust everyone had a nice time and stayed healthy and active during their time off. It will soon be time to sign up for season 3 labs. The sports that will be offered in season 3 are basketball/volleyball and soccer. Both labs should include 2-3 jamborees and lots of opportunities for growth. The soccer lab is open for students from K-4 and the basketball/volleyball lab is only open for students in Grade 3 and 4.
- 2/20 Jumping for Healthy Hearts is coming up this Friday. It will be a fantastic afternoon filled with many health and skipping events, including: health and nutrition presentations from the Grade 4's, a skipping performance from the Grade 3's our hour long skip and more. Grades 2-4 are reminded that their pledge forms should be completed by Friday, but they don't have to be brought in until next Wednesday. Students should wear their team colors on that day. If you don't know what team you are on, please ask your homeroom teacher or Mr. T.

- 08/14 Welcome to the 2017/2018 school year. I am Mr. Tronsgard, your PE teacher. This is my 5th school year with CDS. I am very excited to welcome new and old students on Wednesday.

This year we will also have many labs, after school programs and weekend jamborees scheduled to meet the needs of those active FP students who somehow still have energy after PE class is finished.
