Holiday Message from Paul 2014

by SPARK


Hi everybody:

Happy holidays to you and yours from all of us at SPARK!

Hard to believe it’s nearly the end of 2014.  Whether you are a preschool teacher, an after school youth leader, a physical education specialist, classroom teacher, or administrator, we know how hard you worked every day this year for your students.

SPARK has been busy too – working for YOU.  Here are just a few of the new resources we created in 2014:

•             SPARKdance DVD – SPARK’s greatest dance hits – music, videos, lesson plans, more, all on 1 DVD for K-12 PE

•             SPARKdance section on SPARKfamily.org (K-12 and After School dances all in one section – extra content free for SPARKers!)

•             Revised our alignments on sparkpe.org to reflect the new SHAPE America Physical Education Standards

•             Added new “Fastbreak” videos to SPARKabc’s

•             Launched the SPARK Speakers Bureau!  Now there are 5 Fantastic Workshops available for your next PD day!

•             Created the SPARK 25 Day Challenge!

Our holiday gift to YOU is a promise to continue developing new, innovative tools that help your students learn and you to become the best teacher you can be.

On behalf of all of your friends at SPARK (and Wendy and Scout) have a safe and wonderful holiday season.

Paul Rosengard

P.S:  Here’s my favorite picture of Scout in the snow.  Wendy, Scout, and I are going to our favorite mountain town (Idyllwild, CA) over New Year’s.  We hope Scout gets some quality time in the white stuff!
