HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR TARGET HEART RATE

Below is a link so that you  can calculate your target heart rate.  Your  target heart rate is a range of numbers (range of heartbeats per minute) that your heart should be beating during exercise. Use this guide in order to know if you should increase/decrease the intensity of your exercise routine.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

We have started the PHYSICAL EDUCATION portion of this course.  Students need to bring their dress out clothes daily and make sure to lock/secure all of their valuables in their locker each day.  Please wear shorts/sweat pants/t-shirts/sweatshirts/tennis shoes.  DO NOT WEAR TANK TOPS/BOOTS/SHORTS WITH BELT LOOPS.  Thank you!

END OF HEALTH/BEGINNING OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION

We end the HEALTH portion of this course on Friday, October 6th.  We will begin our PHYSICAL EDUCATION portion on Monday, October 9th.  After a few days of organizational necessities, we will begin with FITNESSGRAM testing per County/State guidelines.  Please make sure that your student dresses out each day for class.  Tennis shoes, Shorts, short sleeve shirt, sweat pants, sweat shirt, etc. are all acceptable clothes.  Tank tops, jeans, sandals and dress shoes are not appropriate and will result in a “not dressed” grade for the day.  Students need to secure their belongings in a locker every day in an effort to eliminate the concern of having their belongings stolen or “lost”.  If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected]
