    Welcome Back!

    We are off to a great start to the new school year in Stevens PE.  We, the PE team of Susan Goubert and Eric Peters , welcome you all and are so excited about the energy and enthusiasm each student has demonstrated.  We look forward to great things this year.   

     

    Stevens classes receive three 40-minute PE classes per week, once outside (weather permitting) and twice inside.  We cover a wide range of skills and health/fitness content throughout the year and encourage you to review the Physical Education pages on the Stevens SPS website for an overview of that.  We will be sharing important updates and highlights on this page, “news”.  Here is our first “PE news” list:

     

    • We’ve been focusing on applying our schoolwide expectations of Safety, Teamwork, Accomplishment, and Respect (STAR) to the PE classroom, utilizing fun, cooperative games, community circles, recess games/routines, and more.
    • Students in grades 3-5 are participating in the Presidential Youth Fitness Test where we assess their cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility in a non-competitive, supportive environment.  These are district required baseline scores for the year and we will test them again mid-year and then the final time in Spring.
    • We’ve been using dynamic stretching, plank, jogging, jumping-jackes, burpees, and more to warm-up and static stretching, yoga, mindfulness and more to cool-down after each main activity

     

    Thanks so much for reading our updates and stay tuned for a fun and active year in PE!

     

    Yours truly,

     

    The Stevens PE Team
