National Sportsmanship Day

@ Round Hill ElementaryIf you are a RHE 5th grader & you would like to be on the RHE team click here.Paper Registration Form (click here)A group of elementary physical education teachers in the western cluster of Loudoun Valley High School have grown tired and frustrated by these reports. As a result, these physical education specialists have organized a Handball Tournament on Saturday, March 18th from 8:15 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. at Round Hill Elementary School to honor National Sportsmanship Day. Fifth-grade students, who range in age from 10-12 years old, from each of the ten elementary schools in the western cluster will represent their schools in a round-robin format handball tournament. The purpose of the event is to show these young athletes and observers that you can play competitively, have fun, and show good sportsmanship. The event will begin with two students from each school reading a story or poem that they wrote about the importance of sportsmanship
During every game, the players will be encouraged and praised for their sportsmanship behaviors. After every game, the players will congratulate the opposing school for their participation and successes. At the end of the tournament, all young athletes will receive ribbons for their excellent participation in today's event and we will congratulate all of the observers for their sportsmanship.
The physical education specialists who are putting together this event are excited about the possibilities this may possess. Please stop by Round Hill Elementary School on Saturday, March 18 from 8:15 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.
The elementary schools and physical education specialists involved in the National Sportsmanship Day are:

WHAT IS PROJECT ACES?Each May, on a designated date and time, millions of school children all over the globe will exercise simultaneously in a symbolic gesture of fitness and unity to show the world that they do not fit into that negative stereotype of being "physically unfit". This non-competitive program has proven to be educational, motivational, and fun. When Len Saunders created Project ACES back in 1989, he had no idea that it would reach the magnitude and success of today. The program has been praised by Presidents of the United States, such as Bill Clinton, George Bush, and Ronald Reagan. The program has also received praise from governors, Senators, and celebrities in sports and show business. Starting its 18th year, Project ACES has reached millions of children, parents, and teachers all over the world, including participants from over 50 countries.
WHEN IS THIS YEAR'S WORLDWIDE EVENT?This annual global event will occur on Wednesday, May 6. At Round Hill Elementary we are celebrating it at 8:15 AM, after the morning announcements. It will be celebrated during May, which is National Physical Fitness & Sports month.
WHY DO WE HAVE PROJECT ACES?Project ACES aims to educate children about the importance of lifelong fitness, and to end the negative stereotype that children are physically unfit. Exercise can lower the chances of coronary heart disease, which includes high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and physical inactivity. Project ACES makes fitness fun!Stop by & join the fun!!! Wednesday, May 1 at 8:15 AM.
