  • Working from home- PE IDEAS

    Hello Positive Astros

    I got to assign PE to my son today.  He did Just Dance on his Nitendo Switch.  This is a great way to have fun while getting in some physical fitness.  We are in the process of making a 30 minute playlist.  I can't wait to test out his play list.  You never know I might even post a video of it.  

    Tomorrow is going to be an exciting day, it is chrome book distribution day.  I will be waving to you all who will be picking up.  I might even wear my shark hat. 

    I miss seeing you all so much. 

    Make it a great day or not the choice is yours,

    Mrs. Sterbutzel

    Good Morning Positive Astros!

    As we embark on this new adventure together you may feel some trepidation as I do.  We need to remember to stop and breathe.  This is new to all of us and we need to give ourselves some grace.  We will all make mistakes.  Remember with mistakes it is just a new opportunity to learn.  Just imagine how well versed we will all be by the end of this.  We will all have a new Genius.
