My name is Cody Ward and I am the Health/PE teacher here at Spalding.  I have taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade totaling 13 years of teaching experience.  This is my third year teaching Health/PE and I absoutely love it!  I am now out in the new addition and am so excited about my new, huge Health classroom!  I will update this website each quarter to let you know what we will be learning and talking about in each grade level for Health.  I am looking forward to another wonderful year with your fabulous children! Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
