Sumner High School California Lutheran University University of Puget Sound K-12 PE 4-12 Health Athletic Director

Mrs. Karin Buchholz

I teach 6th grade health and fitness and am the athletic director for OMS. Beacasue I am always going back and forth between locker rooms, gyms and fileds, the best way to reach me is via email.

Please check family access regularly for grade updates. I also try to send emails regularly with class updates. 

If a student misses a day of PE, they must make it up. If it is a running day, they need to run before or after school or during Falcon Time. If they missed a "daily participation" day, they need to complete 30 minutes of exercise and fill out a PE makeup form. Make up forms are available on the OMS home page.

I am in my 28th year of teaching, with the last 18 being in Orting. I am married and have two kids. My oldest daughter is a Freshman at University of Northern Colorado and my younger daughter is a Junior at White River High Schiool. I love family, animals, hiking, and sports.
