I am very excited to be starting my 6th year of teaching at Flatirons Elementary School. I was born here in Boulder and grew up in Nederland. I participated in many sporting activities growing up, but focused most of my time and energy on alpine ski racing. I completed my B.A. at the University of Colorado at Boulder in Psychology and Elementary Education, and did my student teaching in first grade. I went on to get a M.S. in Sport and Exercise Science: Sport Pedagogy and Physical Education. I also spent 8 years coaching for Eldora Mountain Ski Club. I look forward to a fun, healthy and active year!

SKILLS, FUN AND FITNESS DAY!
May 22, 2014

On May 22nd every Flatirons student will participate in Skills, Fun and Fitness Day.  During this time the students will demonstrate the skills they have learned in P.E., their fitness level, and participate in other fun activities.

9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. - THIRD, FOURTH and FIFTH GRADE
12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. - KINDERGARTEN, FIRST and SECOND GRADE

Note: AM Kindergarteners who do not attend Kindergarten Enrichment will need to come to school in the afternoon if they would like to participate in the Skills, Fun and Fitness Day.

Family volunteers are needed!  The fifth graders will be running the stations for the kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade Skills, Fun and Fitness Day, however for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade Skills, Fun and Fitness Day I will rely on family volunteers to run the stations (I need at least 23 volunteers).  If you are interested in volunteering please email me at Loren.Tillotson@bvsd.org.
 
Everyone is welcome to join us for this end of the year celebration. Hope to see you there.

The Physical Education program at Flatirons Elementary School is based on the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) Physical Education content standards and curriculum.  The BVSD Physical Education standars are modeled after the Colorado content standards for physical education.  The BVSD content standards are:

  1. Movement competence and understanding.
  2. Physical and personal wellness.
  3. Emotional and social wellness.
  4. Prevention and risk management.

One thing you can do to help your student be safe and responsible in P.E. (Standard 4) is ensure they wear appropriate footwear to P.E.  Boots, shoes with heels, flip-flops, sandals, Crocs, and open toed shoes are NOT safe to wear in P.E.  Shoes that stay snug on the foot and provide support and good traction are best.  The P.E. schedule is posted above so you and your student know which days are P.E. days.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I look forward to a fun, healthy and active year!
