First Injury Today

Today we had our first "real" injury during PE class this school year.

Playing Ultimate Frisbee indoors, and student was chasing down the frisbee and ran right into the cement wall.  Hit his noggin pretty good too.

We have been very fortunate to not need anything other than a few band-aids for some scrapes so far this school year.

This is just a reminder that we try to play as safe as we can.  We would like to avoid injuries if at all possible.  However, when you start doing physical activities that is one of the risks.

I've been very fortunate in my PE teaching career.  No real terrible injuries that I can recall.  Probably the worst were a girl who tore some ligaments in her ankle, and a few broken teeth.  Hopefully this is because I do try to keep the kids safe, but whenever someone does get hurt, it's always a good time to remind people to be safe.
