P.E. Program

Welcome to the Hillrise Elementary PE Program!

Coach Mark Dwake runs the Physical Education program at Hillrise. There are a variety of programs that Mr. Dwake teaches students including, but not limited to:

Walking Friday "Walk & Roll to School"

A Walking School Bus program is a group of children who walk or bike to school under the supervision of adults.  Remember the thrill of riding a bike for the first time or walking to school that first day?  When walking or biking, parents and children get to appreciate things they don’t notice while driving—listening to the sounds of the neighborhood, seeing friends and neighbors and feeling connected with their community. Parents, children and friends can enjoy one another's company without the usual distractions.  The program promotes good health, a cleaner environment, and reduced traffic around the school.  Come get your charms and a punch on your Punch Card each day you walk!

Walking and bicycling events celebrate these experiences and help make them possible for others. They bring schools and communities together for a common purpose. Most of all, they are fun!  (Walk Bike to School)    Please contact Principal Mike Kleczka or myself (Coach Dwake) for further information about our program and join us with other parent volunteers walking to school. We will meet every Friday morning, except holidays, at 7:20am starting at the Apostic Tabernacle on High Street.
