Movement in Elementary Activities Pays it Forward

This past semester, Dr. Lauren Cavanaugh’s Movement in Elementary Activities class (PED 311/PEG 511) created a series of videos displaying how they “get moving.” This was part of the NYS AHPERD Get Moving video conference. Prize money was awarded to the first, second, and third place videos to be used towards the purchase of new physical education equipment for their local schools.

Two videos from PED311/PEG511 were awarded with second and third place prizes, totaling $350. The class decided to “pay it forward” to the NativityMiguel Middle School of Buffalo. Some of the equipment purchased by NativityMiguel included: jump ropes, playground and basketballs, sidewalk chalk, and ball pumps.

Read About the Classics Tea@2

Faculty, students, and friends of the Classics Department celebrated their last Tea@2 for Spring 2015 on Friday, May 1. The department has hosted tea every Friday during the semester for the past two years.

The faculty thanked the students for their loyal participation by giving them mugs engraved with Tea@2 and Canisius Classics. The mugs were purchased with generous support from the Classical Association of the Atlantic States.
