Dear John Adam's Elementary Community,

This is your Physical Education teacher, Patrick Daley. I wanted to share what a joy it has been working with the students of Adams and the 4 other Torrance Unified elementary schools I teach for. I was born and raised in Torrance and attended TUSD schools. I feel extremely lucky and honored to be able to give back to the community that raised me.

Attention 5th graders and families: The California Fitness Exam is approaching fast! We have been working hard in P.E. over the past few months to get our bodies and minds ready for this state-wide assessment.

"The physical fitness test (PFT) for students in California schools is the FITNESSGRAM®. The main goal of the test is to help students in starting life-long habits of regular physical activity.Students in grades five, seven, and nine take the fitness test. The test has six parts that show a level of fitness that offer a degree of defense against diseases that come from inactivity. The test results can be used by students, teachers, and parents" (California Department of Education). 

If you would like to read more about the history of these exams, please visit the CDP Web site at www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/pf/

To see examples of what the exams look like and what your students will be asked to complete, please visit www.youtube.com/watch?v=SomNURqztqc

We have been working hard these past few months preparing for the exam and I have no doubt all 5th graders will be ready. The testing will begin Tuesday, February 21.  If you have questions or concerns about the Fitness Gram, please feel free to email me directly at daley.patrick@tusd.org and I will be happy to discuss further.

In Health,

Mr. Daley

 

Mark your calendars! March 6th-10th is National School Breakfast Week!  

Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for families to find time to eat a healthy breakfast. TUSD Nutrition Services is here to help! We want you to take advantage of the healthy breakfast choices that are not only whole grain-rich, but also low in fat, sugar, calories and sodium and are available in your child's school cafeteria every morning. 

In honor of National School Breakfast Week, we will be hosting a Red Dot Day at your child's school during the week of March 6th-10th at the normal breakfast serving time. Students are encouraged to come to the cafeteria to eat a healthy breakfast and have the chance to win fun prizes if they find a red dot under their breakfast tray. 

Also, did you know that if your child qualifies to receive a free lunch, they can get a free breakfast as well? A regular priced breakfast is only $1.50 making it quick, convenient, and cost-effective. A reduced price breakfast costs $0.25 for students who qualify.
