Summer Learning Challenge #6!
Create Your Own Obstacle Course!
This week’s challenge is all about physical activity!
All you’ll need is:
- some outdoor space (like a backyard, driveway, courtyard, or sidewalk)
- some sidewalk chalk
- anything else that’s lying around (like a lawn chair or a planter box)
You can make your obstacle course as long or as short as you want and as difficult or as easy as you want. Draw out what you want people to do with your chalk (arrows are helpful, as are specific directions….but keep the words to a minimum).
Some ideas for obstacle course items are:
- complete a hopscotch course
- walk in a circle around some objects (like a table or chair)
- walk backwards
- jump over a line
- hop on one foot
Try it out once or twice before you have other people do it, so you can fix anything that’s confusing or doesn’t work. Then, recruit your friends and family to try out your obstacle course.
- See how long it takes each person to get through the course
- Time someone (or yourself) going through the course multiple times to see if you get faster
- Have someone do the obstacle course while carrying an object
Have fun and be creative!

2019 Summer Learning Challenge #1!
Hi, guys and gals! Happy Summer Vacation!
Your first Principal's Summer Learning Challenge is an easy (but important one): READ!!!
Read. Every. Day.
Read anywhere. Read anything. Just read!
In case you didn't get them from Mrs. Lacey (our librarian), below are the Summer Reading Bingo cards to help you get creative about what and where you read! If you turn in a completed bingo card in the first week of school, you'll be invited to watch a special movie in the library! If you need ideas of books to read, check out these "Read Alike" links ("if you liked X, try this book")!
