Mr. Brown's Newsletter

Yes, we are going ice skating. As a school we will be going ice skating at the Parker Ice Trail. We will be using a charter bus to shuttle students to the ice trail on December 19th and 20th. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades will be going one class at a time on December 19th. The 4th and 5th graders will be going to the ice trail one class at a time on December 20th.

You should have received a permission slip in Thursday Folders on November 29th. Please sign the permission slip and send the fee to your students teacher. The permission slips are due December 7th.

I need lots of volunteers for these two days. I will need help loading and unloading the busses, tying ice skates, and helping inside the library with hot chocolate and cookies.

Please email me at luke.brown@dcsdk12.org if you have any questions.


We have already played the following sports or the following activities. You could go and play these games with your student/family. I am trying to teach games and sports that they can play at any time in and around the Parker community to help make the 60 minutes of play each day.

Games played:

    • Collaboration games (Indiana Jones, Castle Relay, Hop Hoop Hoopla)
    • Frisbee games (Throwing, catching, Disc Golf, Ultimate Frisbee)
    • Racket sports (Tennis, pickelball, racquetball)
    • Basketball (Dribbling, passing, shooting)
    • Gymnastics (Balance, strength)
    • Rock wall
    • American Ninja Warrior obstacle course
    • Spikeball (striking skills)
    • Yard games (underhand tossing with Cornhole, Horseshoes, bowling, ring toss, and Giant Jenga)
