This week we will be doing Fitness Testing to see if our scores from the beginning of the school year has improved. Please have your child wear tennis shoes that have traction on them so they are not slipping.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! The past couple of weeks all the students have been doing dance in P.E. 6-8 get to expand their knowledge and movements and are going to be teaching their class a dance that they have came up with. This project is a very large one and is worth a entire month or participation points. Part of that grade will be on how well they think their partners did. They had a full week in P.E to work on this project as well as Thanksgiving break. I am excited to see what everyone has come up and they will be presenting this week.
For the rest of the month of October, on Fridays we will be doing deep stretching. If students can bring an exercise mat or towel, that would be great! If the weather is nice, we will go outside. If you do not want the mats to get dirty, students may bring a towel.
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.
