What a great group of fifth graders! We have been establishing routines and expectations as we work toward being a true community of learners. We know that kids learn best when they are happy and unstressed, and feel supported by their teachers and their peers.
Please enjoy these videos of fifth graders bonding:
- over a rousing game of Human Hungry, Hungry Hippos
- our very own Fiona, Collin and Mikhal explaining what it means to be Respectful and Responsible here at Seven Peaks.
Mrs. Landolt, Physical Education
Hello! I am your child’s physical education teacher. This is my 7th year at Seven Peaks and my 10th year teaching PE. I am a Central Oregon native who grew up in Madras. I have lived in Bend for 15 years with my husband. I enjoy watching and playing all types of sports. During the summer I love to travel and hang out at our beautiful lakes. This year my classes are going to learn and practice many skills. They will be encouraged to be physically active, develop cooperation and teamwork, increase personal fitness and motor development, and participate in many fun games and activities. Please encourage your child to wear tennis shoes on the Tuesdays and Thursdays when they have PE. I am looking forward to a fun and active year!
Ms. Royes, 4th – 8th Visual Arts Teacher
We are gearing up for a great year in the art room! I have been teaching at Seven Peaks for 10 years now and have worked to develop and art program that allows students to explore a wide range of mediums, artists and art movements. We will start out the year with a unit reviewing the elements of art while designing each students name tags. We have a lot of exciting projects this year and I am looking forward to getting to know each student as we kick off the school year. Please email me with any questions you might have about the art program at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in volunteering in the art room you can find the website to sign up through the SPS website under Volunteer.
