Our LAST chance to go GAGA!!!

Hi Parents!

This is our last chance to get first dibs on the Gaga Pit!
Remember, the class donating the most money gets to use the Gaga Pit first 🙂
Thank you to those who have already donated to another constructive game for kids to play during recess!  I’ve never played Gaga Ball, but my son and many of the students in our classroom say it’s a blast!!  I know that other elementary schools in the district have Gaga Pits and from what I understand, there are always many kids waiting in line to play!!
Don’t forget, that as members of the community who live close to school, you’ll also be able to play after school hours!!
Thanks for your help 🙂

 

Going Gaga!

A youtube video showing the game of gaga is here. 

We would like to ask for your support with a Physical Education WISH.  Our playground has space to accommodate a GAGA BALL PIT—and we’d love to have a pit added to our green space.   


The game of GAGA is high paced, high energy and high fun.  It combines the skills of dodging, running, jumping and eye/hand/body coordination.  The addition of a GAGA PIT on our playground would benefit:

  • PE:  Support our instructional skills.

  • Recess: Provide another activity for children on the 2-5 playground.

  • Community:  Available for after hours use for family, friends and community members.


Our PTC has donated partial funding from the Fall WALK•A•THON earnings.  We believe we can cover the total cost through a special three week fundraiser.


GOAL:  Donate $1.00 per child.


INCENTIVE:  Class that raises the most $$ will be first to use the GAGA PIT once it is assembled.


FUNDRAISER DATES:  January 12-23.  A weekly update on the winners will be posted.

 

Send your GAGA DOLLARS to school so we can have a Georgetown Gaga Pit!
