This Week will be the last week to donate for Jump Rope For Heart. Thank you for all the support so far and raising money for a great cause!
Over Spring break I would like if the students try to complete the worksheet they will get from me. The students will have their own copy by this Friday (March 16th). It's okay if they do not follow every goal, as long as they try their best! Try to have the students try to mark off two days per category. If they misplace the worksheet, I can email you another copy. The worksheet will help remind them to stay healthy over spring break. Some of the items are not easy and understand if students are not able to check off the boxes everyday. Hope everyone has a great spring break!
For the month of March, One of the students goals are to incorporate family. Some of the goals I read were to go on walks with their family, eat healthier with their family, and to pray more with their family. If possible, please help your child achieve their goal this month. Look forward to hearing the students talk about their goals and how they incorporated family.
For the past few weeks the students have been working on their volleyball skills. I am very impressed with the students trying new skills. We have played several different types of volleyball games, including playing with balloons. With our Field Day coming up, these skills might come in handy!
Field Day for 6-8th grades will be Thursday, May 10th. We will be gone all school day at Sports Pavilion Lawrence, Lawrence KS. Students will need to bring a water bottle. There are water bottle fill up stations at the Pavilion. Please make sure students also wear tennis shoes or they will not allowed to be on the courts or soccer field. More information will be sent out around spring break. Look forward to a fun filled day!
This week the students will be doing Fitness Testing. I received a grant and I purchased plyo boxes to help the students with their jumping and landing skill. We will be using them for fitness testing and I am very proud of the students for the effort they have put into jumping correctly. Some students surprised themselves on how high they can jump.
Hope everyone had a great Christmas break! We will be starting the year off with the students writing down a goal on my door and each month they can grow on their goal or change it up. Please encourage your student to work on their goal outside of school.
Fitness testing was new to the students this year and I am very impressed the hard work the students did this semester. Almost all the students improved their scores from the beginning of the school year. The students put a lot of effort into the testing and i am very proud of them. I Look forward to next semester.
The way the students will be graded this year for P.E is by participation and attendance. Everyday is worth 20 points. 10 points for showing up and wearing appropriate shoes. The other 10 points will be on good sportsmanship and effort. 100 points are possible for the entire week if it's a full 5 day school week. If students miss a day they will have opportunities to make up the points.
Hi there! my name is Mrs. Langer and I am the new P.E teacher for Saint Matthews. A little about myself is that I am from Perry, KS and live there with my husband Aaron Langer. We have two awesome dogs, Stanley and Emma Rae. I got my Bachelor of Science degree at Baker University with emphasis on Physical Education and Health. I have a background in personal training and I played tennis at Johnson County Community College for 2 years. I look forward to sharing my passion for sports and fitness with all my students. Can't wait to meet everyone.
