Physical Education Teacher Lori McCurdy - Physical Education  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to Mrs. McCurdy's physical education webpage. It is a brand new year and I am very excited to be working as an elementary physical education teacher at Grand Prairie. We have a very well-rounded program and we are constantly trying to keep our curriculum fresh. Mr. Seibert, Mrs. Cleveland, and I are working very hard this year to give your child the best physical education class that they can have. We will be doing our research to incorporate spelling, math, and reading into our lessons. Our main goal is to keep the children moving and educate them on how to stay fit for life.

My classes this year include:

Mrs. Malone-Kindergarten
Ms. Rogers-Kindergarten
Mrs. Kelly-Kindergarten
Mrs. Pizzolato-Kindergarten
Mrs. DeYoung-Kindergarten
Mrs. Truesdale-1st Grade
Ms. Ladalski-1st Grade
Mrs. Jorgensen-1st Grade
Mrs. Baty-1st Grade
Mrs. Brannigan-1st Grade
Ms. Elia-2nd Grade
Mrs. Kora-2nd Grade
Mr. Kraatz-2nd Grade
Mrs. Petrovic-2nd Grade
Mrs. Aranowski-2nd Grade

We will be collecting box tops and pop tops this year as part of our fundraising programs. Our box tops go towards purchasing equipment for physical education as well as needed school resources. The pop tops go to the Ronald McDonald foundation which helps families in need. You can put your box tops directly into a zip-loc bag and label the outside with the amount collected (50 at a time preferred). We weigh the pop tabs so there is no need to count them. In addition to these fundraising activities we will also be doing the JDRF walk in the Spring as well as a Fall fundraiser which we are currently discussing.
