Meet Mikayel, Our 5th Grade PE Co-Teacher!

Mikayel from Kyla’s class has volunteered to co-teach P.E. every Wednesday. Today was his first day and the 1st graders had such a wonderful time with him. He was helping them improve their underhand throw using the cue “Tick-tock step rock” and walking around to check on focus, cooperation and smiles. We are very excited to have this P.E co-teacher every Wednesday.
