Gillispie “Gems” of the Week

May 5, 2011

A former Gillispie student, a “Lifer” who attended from age 2 through Grade 6, recently wrote to the School to announce her graduation from The Bishop’s School and her acceptance to Dartmouth College. Congrats, Bay!

Physical Education teacher Ed Whelan coaches Cole G. through obstacle course hoop-stepping during a prekindergarten class. Children in the right line started with the right foot, then ran the length of the sport court (and back), and then got into a nearby line to hoop-step starting with the left foot. Such obstacle course training leads to students working through a full course and, if they choose, someday participating in that event at the Kiwanis Junior Olympics (this year on May 15).
