Basketball season is here!

If you haven't already picked up your registration form to join TISD Intramural basketball, I have some in my office. I handed some out in class for those students interested. This is for 3rd -6th grade.  Our school will be paired up with Nash to make the teams.  Each grade will have a boys team and a separate girls team.  Practices will be 2 days a week with games on Saturdays.  Once all the forms have been turned in a coach will be assigned to your team.  The coach will then contact you with practice times and location.  I am looking forward to seeing our students play. The cost of this program is only $10!  They will supply you a jersey to wear for the games.  Registrations are due to me by the morning of Thursday, November 16th.  If you have any questions you can call or email me.

P.E. News

For the month of September, we made Flag Football the sport of the month for our 4th - 6th graders.  Everyone enjoyed getting to play.  We learned routes, positions, how to throw and catch, basic rules, and most important, how to work as a team.  The students had so much fun they want to continue to play even after the month is over.  So we are now adding Flag Football into the rotations of games played in P.E. Also pictured below are our Primary I and II class working on their Gross Motor skills and our 1st - 6th graders enjoying a nice game of Bean Bag Toss. Our sport of the month in October is Soccer, I will be posting Pictures of the students playing very soon.

Back to School!

What a great start we have had at St. James! I was so excited to see everyone on that first day of school. I am amazed at how much your children have grown over the Summer break! I hope you enjoy the pictures of your children getting back into the routine of things. I have some new activities planned this year in the area of sports and games. I will be taking lots of pictures and posting them so make sure you stop by and check out my blog from time to time. You may catch your child on here having some fun!

Thanks a bunch for sharing your children with us,
Nicole Chatelain
