John Rogers Physical Education Information

Welcome to John Rogers Physical Education!  My name is Melissa Blumhagen and this will be my 5th year teaching P.E. at J.R.E.  My main goal in P.E. is to keep everyone moving in a safe and fun way!  Every couple of weeks we change our unit of activity.  We cover activities and sports ranging from cooperative team play to individual, life-long activity play. Look to the calendar to get the specifics for the rest of the year. We are also lucky enough to be partnered with Cascade Bicycle Club and offer a 3 week bicycle & pedestrian safety unit for our 3-5th graders (more information to come in Kid Mail).  I will need volunteers to help this unit go smoothly, so if you can help, look for a Sign Up genius in April.

In March, Mrs. Burke and I will again sponsor the Running Club for students to participate in after school!  This is a great way for our kids to stay active in those rainy and cold months.  We will be asking for families to donate healthy snacks for the kids to eat before running, so know that information will be coming across on email.

Things to Know About P.E.

If your student is injured and cannot participate in P.E., please send a note either from you or a doctor or email me your concern.

Please make sure your student is wearing appropriate footwear to participate in activities either in the gym or outside

If you ever have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!  I am here to support all our students in any way possible.

Thank you! Mrs. Blumhagen at email: and phone: 206-252-4330
