Welcome Back Eagles!

Welcome Back Eagles!

            Welcome back to Zia Elementary School! For those families new to Zia my name is Mr. Dunham and I am your child’s physical education teacher. I am so fortunate to be at such a wonderful school and community of children and parents (this year is my 14th year at Zia). My physical education program is centered on the NASPE (National Association for Sport and Physical Education) and New Mexico state physical education standards, which focus on your child learning the basic skills necessary to living a healthy, physically active lifestyle. My curriculum combines learning of basic skills (running, throwing, kicking, catching, etc.) and health-related fitness.

            Zia’s physical education page will be used to update students and parents on what is going on in the physical education class. I will post monthly newsletters and fitness calendars, videos, kid friendly physical activity and nutrition webpages as well as event reminders for Family Fitness Nights and other school wide events.

            Please bookmark this page so that you and your children can always stay up to speed on what’s going on in the world of physical education here at Zia!
