A big Wolfpack welcome to all of our students for the 2017/2018 school year! We had a wonderful day to start off the year and we look forward to 183 more days together! The PE Team is especially excited to kick off the year with physical education classes starting on Wednesday, September 6th. Mr. McLachlan, Mr. Chan, Mr. Bradshaw and Ms. Foster are thrilled to be back in the gym this year and happy to add one more member to our team! Mrs. Woitas, is joining us from Broxton Park in the MCP program and will be teaching grade 5 and 6 PE this year.

Also attached below is a short presentation outlining what the PE Program and Athletics Program are all about. We look forward to continuing some of our fantastic work from past years as well as trying new things! Stay in the loop by subscribing to our blog!!!
Woodhaven students are very fortunate to have the luxury of daily physical education but even more so, they are lucky to have 4 qualified and passionate Physical Educators leading the program! We often take our good fortune for granted but very few middle schools in the world, offer this type of daily PE programming to students in this age group! The research is constantly flowing to inform us of all of the physical, academic, mental, and emotional benefits of daily physical activity and more recently we are learning how important physical literacy is to the development of a child. PHE Canada defines physical literacy as individuals who move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person. Woodhaven has been recognized by PHE Canada for our Outstanding Achievement in providing Quality Daily Physical Education! This is a 4 star award which is the highest level of achievement recognized in Canada. Well done Woodhaven! We look forward to another star worthy year in 2017/2018!
Congratulations to all of our grade 5/6 Woodhaven students who qualified for the 4/5/6 Divisional Track & Field Meet on Tuesday, June 6th. This event will take place at Stony Plain Central School and will begin at 9:00am. Please check out the event schedule below. GO WOLFPACK!!
As we get set to wind down the school year, we are just winding up for our annual slo-pitch league! Students in grades 5-8 will be divided into smaller teams to play in a mini slo-pitch tournament during PE class. We encourage students to bring or borrow a baseball glove to catch those fly balls! Take a look at the rest of the June calendar below.
