Summer School PE Classes at Orchard Place

Saturday, August 18th, 2018

Summer School High School PE students were able to experience biking on the bike trails of Des Moines this summer.  We received a generous donation from Variety Club of fifteen bike helmets that helped us provide a real life biking experience for our students.  The Des Moines Bike Collective rented bikes to us for our students’ ride and  with the bike helmets from Variety Club our students were off.  Students rode bikes from Gray’s Lake to Principal Park and then back.  Aaron McMurphy, PE Teacher, and his associate rode with the students and complimented the students on how well they managed the bike ride. We are hopeful to have summer PE next year.  PE in the summer allows students who are short PE credit for graduation an opportunity to earn this credit while they attend Orchard Place School.
