Good morning students! I am out the door to surf with my daughter right now but I thought I would check in and say hi. I know that yesterday was registration day and I want to welcome all students who are now in my PE class. We are going to have a fun year learning about health, nutrition, and exercise plus many other things.
Take a few minutes to surf around my site. Click on the “Primal Pattern Thursday” button and watch the videos to learn more about some of the exercises we will be doing. The first sport we will play is flag football so click on the “Sports Guide” button and read about the rules of flag football.
See you all soon. Get outside and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Good Monday to everyone! I just got back from surfing in Surfside. Waves were 2-3 feet and I caught some fun ones. If you have a minute this week I encourage you to check out the Vans U.S. Open surf contest in Huntington Beach. It’s quite a spectacle. You can also watch live action by clicking on the link below. Enjoy your week.

What’s up people! I thought I would check in real quick and say hi. I have been surfing my brains out so far this summer and today the waves are finally picking up a bit. I encourage you all to get to the beach this summer and swim, body surf, paddle board, boogie board and of course SURF. I hope everyone is having a restful yet fun summer? The Huntington Beach surf cam is below.

From Mr. Zuercher
The boys participated in the Push-Ups for Charity event this morning, and competed against other schools in the School division. They went head to head against Woodbridge and Northwood high schools, as well as a team from Plaza Vista. They ended up winning the competition, completing the most push-ups combined of any school team. They won the school competition trophy, which will be displayed proudly in the trophy case. The school will keep the trophy for one year, and will have a chance to defend their title next year.
Along with the team, Andrea Balbas and three of her geometry students also came out and participated in the event. Complete domination ensued.
Big props go to Craig L, who did an amazing 80 push-ups in 90 seconds, which I believe is the most done by any student I’ve had in the 3 years we’ve been participating.
So far the team has raised $1,438 and we are hoping to reach our goal of $3,000 once we collect from everyone who pledged to donate per push-up.
