Fitnessgram 1/16/2018


The new semester is off to a great start. We have given out lockers, students are dressing out and getting active. We have already started our fitnessgram. For those that don’t know fitnessgram is a fitness assessment and reporting program for youth testing the five components of physical fitness which are cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, muscular flexibility and body composition . We will take height and weight to use for BMI calculations for body composition, gauge cardiovascular endurance using the pacer test, muscular strength and endurance using push-up and curl-up (sit-up) tests, and flexibility using sit and reach. The first assignment was for students to show parents the syllabus for PE and bring back their agenda’s signed by parent or guardians. You can access the syllabus on the tab right on this blog.

Week 12


After starting our basketball season we had to take a break due to conferences. In the first week we got separated into teams and we went over history and rules of basketball. We went over violations and the signs referees use when the make the call. We also watched video of violations and students were able to make the call while using the proper sign. We now will continue with week 2 of our basketball season. Week 2 will concentrate on learning the skills of dribbling and passing from the triple threat position. Remember to bring your gym clothes daily as this is part of your grade.

We have started our football and volleyball seasons. Everyone has been assigned a team and have learned specific duty responsibilities including referees, scorekeepers, warm-up leaders, and equipment managers. Every student will be responsible for  doing a sports report which is 4-6 sentences about what they learned during the season. I hope everyone made it through the storm with very minimal inconvenience.
