Welcome to Karen Acres and Olmsted Physical Education! I’m now entering my 26th year of teaching physical education to J-Hawk superstars! I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Northern Iowa in Elementary/Physical Education and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Drake University.
Elementary Physical Education is an opportunity for children to improve motor skills, enhance fitness levels, and increase awareness of healthy heart and nutrition habits. Cooperation and teamwork are important components of the physical education program.
All students are given the opportunity to participate in our running club program. This is a way to improve self-esteem, boost academic performance, and enhance personal fitness abilities. In the past twenty years, students have completed over 150,000 miles.
