SPARK and OPEN
This year in addition to using SPARK we will be introducing OPEN. Just as SPARK is a totally different approach to teaching PE, OPEN is a dynamic curriculum that combines academics, personal responsibility, physical activity and fitness. I am excited to have both resources to help guide your child as they prepare for a lifetime of health and fitness. By working together we can make an impact on how your child views activity and fitness.
A note from Mr. "B"
Welcome to PE at Slate Creek and Sunset I plan on many opportunities for families to come to school and participate in fun fitness and nutrition activities. I also invite you to come back to this webpage often and take advantage of the many things it has to offer...especially the links. It is important that the children are active at home . It is recommended that they log 60 minutes of activity each day. A great way to help with this is for parents to be active with their parents. Fuel Up to Play 60 is another great tool that can help. See the links page for the web address, visit the site and sign your child (3rd and 4th Grades only) up today. I think you will be glad you did. As always if you have questions just send me a note via the contact form on the " About Mr. "B" " page of this web site or send a note with your child.
Fitness Backpacks I have backpacks that I fill with fitness equipment and check out to students on a random basis. If your child brings home a backpack it will be theirs for a week. At the end of that time it will need to be returned. The backpack has information located in the front pockets that is yours to use during that time as well. The contents of the plastic bag which include cookbooks and other fitness and nutrition information need to be returned. The Fitness Calendar and worksheets that are loosely in the pockets are for your family to keep. If you have questions just let me know.
Doctor's Notes If your child is injured or ill please let me know via note or email (contact form works great) before they get to school . That way I can be prepared for any alternative activities they may need .
If your child sees their Doctor and is to be held out of PE class please have the Doctor provide you with a note.
Shoes and Attire: The following is taken from the USD 373 Elementary Handbook PHYSICAL EDUCATION SHOES/ATTIRE The physical education department recommends any soft-soled shoe that fits snugly around the foot be worn for physical education. Shoes that are not acceptable for PE include cowboy boots, hiking boots, snow boots, sandals, jellies, flip flops, dress shoes with hard slick soles, etc. Students without appropriate shoes will not be allowed to participate in activities that may be a safety hazard without appropriate shoes. There will be alternative activities for them to complete while sitting out. Note from Mr. "B"...I do not do this as punishment but rather as a way to keep all children safe.
