1st Quarter Writing Prompt
The first p.e. assignment has been given out. The instructions and the due date has been explained to each class. What is your favorite sport/activity that gets you moving? Your response must be at least 10 complete sentences in paragraph form. If you are an Odd day or everyday student your assignment is due on 9-3. If you are an even day student your assignment id due 9-4. Please write your response on the paper I provided.
Parents please make sure that your student has a decent pair of gym shoes for class. Some of the shoes I have seen are not appropriate for gym. They will be doing a variety of activities and they need a shoe with arch support and a shoe that can handle quick movements. Sperry's, deck shoes, the knock off converses that lace up like boots are not appropriate for gym class. If you have any questions, please email or call me. You can get a decent shoe without paying a lot.
length of shorts
I have received a few emails about the type and length of shorts for my female students. I ask them to wear athletic or basketball shorts because they look nice on everyone, they compliment all body types and they are comfortable! They have been shown how to measure for the proper length and if they are not sure I can help them.
While on medical exemption you are responsible for one five paragraph paper each week you are out of activities. Your paper must be about a Health or Physical Education
area. ( ex. Volleyball, Heart Disease) Each paragraph should consist of at least five complete sentences. This paper is due Monday of every week.
Classroom/Behavior Management Plan
I wanted to take this time to say "Welcome Back" to our returning students and "Welcome to FMS" to those who are new to our family. There are great things in store for your physical education student this school year! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
The P.E. department will be allowing our students to led activities during their class time. This will give them an opportunity to help their peers. We want to see them thrive at all levels!
Parents if your student has an inhaler, please make sure you fill out the proper paperwork so that they can have it at school. I have had several students tell me that they are Asthmatic but when I ask them about their inhaler, their reply is "I don't have one" or "It is at home". Jackie Joyner-Kersee has Asthma and it did not stop her from being an Olympic champion!
This year, the post Fitnessgram results will count towards your student's grade. A rubric has already been made and your students will be given this information. The results of the Fitnessgram test is important and students need to give 100% when being tested. These results help us to decide what activities will best help them improve.
