Practicing good sportmanship
The PE program offers a rich platform to glorify God by teaching students to keep their bodies healthy, as the temple of the Holy Spirit, and by exhibiting Christ-like behavior in our interactions with others. Our goal is to teach students to “love God, love others” by cheering on one another (Heb. 3:13), doing our best in all things (Col. 2:23), and exercising the fruits of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22, 23). The focus verse for PE this year is, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love” (Eph. 4:2).
Intramurals at BCS provide students with the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular physical activity in a moderately competitive environment. The Elementary intramural program serves as an alternative lunchtime recess activity for grades 1-6. Sports and activities will vary monthly and complement the current sports taught during PE class, including tag games, soccer, dodgeball, basketball, kickball and more.
Meet Our PE Teacher
Teaching Elementary PE is the best job in the world! I love playing games with students, teaching new sports, running the Intramural program and helping children discover their personal strengths of physical literacy. I enjoy all types of sports, but my favorite is soccer! I currently play with CWSA and am also involved in the many sports teams that my children play on including hockey, ringette, soccer and lacrosse. My husband and I have three children, two that attend Bearspaw and a daughter who graduated from BCS. Our family is very involved in sports! At school, I also enjoy coaching the JH Girls Floor Hockey and the JH Soccer Team. Go Grizzlies! Sports is a great way to build relationships and share the athletic gifts God has given us to further His kingdom.
