Miss Gliick's Classroom

Welcome to Physical Education and Health


Help me to have confidence in myself and put my trust in you.

Help me to play fair, admit mistakes, and go on with the game.

Help me to do my best and not worry about scoring, winning  and  making big plays, because just trying my best and playing fair is what makes me a winner.  Both in life and on the field.
