2019-20 Physical Education (Gym) Updates
February is Healthy Heart Month at Rowayton School! To encourage being heart healthy and raise heart- health awareness, our students will be doing the "Kids Heart Challenge" for the American Heart Association.
Students have been introduced to the program during their gym class to help them understand how their participation can help those in need. Your child has been sent home with donation envelopes, stickers and directions on how your child can become a "Heart Hero." All money raised goes to fund lifesaving research and programs that help our community and kids with special hearts.
Donations can me made either online, or by simply returning the envelope to Mr. Lib with checks made payable to the "American Heart Association." (Please indicate t-shirt size if raising at least $50)
Our fundraising will conclude with a dance party for K-2 students on Friday, February 28 from 2:30- 3:15 in the Rowayton School gymnasium. Parents are welcome to attend.
Students in grades 3-5 will be having our annual dodgeball tournament during gym classes, which will allow for more physical education time this month as some classes will attend gym during an alternate Special to compete in the tournament.
The American Heart Association rewards students with "thank-you gifts" a few weeks after our fundraising concludes. Last year, Rowayton School raised over $5,000!
Visit the American Heart Association “Kids Challenge” web page for more information or contact Mr. Lib at if you have any questions.
Please check back on this page for news and updates from the Physical Education program and feel free to email with any questions. We are looking forward to a great year!
