Fun Stuff for Physical Education #64
December 24, 2008
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a happy holiday season and my best wishes for the new year. The office will be closed from the 24th to New Year's, so the next blog and "Fun Stuff for PE" newsletter will be delayed by a week - we won't be back until January 12th and 15th respectively.

I hope you enjoy your holidays and I'll see you in 2009!

Dick Moss, Editor

2. From the Web - Free Resources

Just a very short, quirky video to get you in the holiday spirt. Have you ever wondered what Santa does during his vacation time? I'd say he spends a lot of it in sports injury clinics...if this quirky video is any indication! :)
