Each student that attends will receive a free jump rope donated by Modern Woodmen of America and a free Tom's toothpaste sample donated by the Summitt PTA.

A big thanks goes out to the North Mopac and Parmer HEB and Whole Foods Domain for donating gift cards and prizes for our attendees.

Upcoming PE Activities (Second 9-weeks)


We are getting ready to start our new unit.  Our skill units this 9-weeks will include basketball, jump rope and rhythms.  Students in 3rd grade will learn the Cotton-eyed-joe and 4th grade students will learn a folk dance called the Schottische.  We are also going to learn some fun Halloween dances and practice our basketball dribbling and jump rope skills.

Fitnessgram Testing

September 29, 2014

Our window for Fitnessgram testing begins this week.  All 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will be tested in muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility.  Tests include the Pacer, Push-ups, Curl-ups, Sit and reach, Trunk lift and Body Mass Index.

As always, please make sure your kiddos are getting 8-10 hours of sleep, a nutritious breakfast and send them off in comfy attire and tennis shoes. 

Please see link below for more details and thanks for your support!

Welcome Back!

We hope your kiddos are having fun in Physical Education! My name is Michelle Comsudi and I am the full-time PE teacher at Summitt. I am a proud Texas Longhorn and this will be my 8th year as a Summitt Eagle. Coach Woodward is a Texas State Bobcat and this is his 2nd year traveling to Summitt to teach PE. 

We will be teaching 2 skill units and 2 health units each 9-week period.  This first 9-weeks we are focused on cooperative games, nutrition, cardiovascular functions, and throwing and catching skills!

We will be sending out Marathon Kids registration forms in the coming weeks. Those will be due by October 25th, which is the date of the Kick-off event at UT. Once your registration form has been turned in, I will give your son or daughter a running/walking log which they will use to track their 26.2 miles throughout the next 5 months. Logs will be due by the end of February so I can order their Free Finisher T-shirts. If you need more information about Marathon Kids, please visit
