All students in grades 1-5 are currently participating in the PACER test. The PACER is apart of the Fitnessgram. Below are the directions that your child hears at the start of the test. It is pre-recorded and plays over the speakers in the gymnasium...
The FitnessGram Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 15 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal bodeboop. A single lap should be completed every time you hear this sound. ding Remember to run in a straight line and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark. Get ready!… Start. ding
On Wednesday September 13th, our school will be hosting parent engagement night. This is an opportunity for any parents to come between the hours of 430-730 and meet with their child's teacher. I will be in the gymnasium so please feel free to stop by and say hello. I will be discussing topics including curriculum, expectations, communication and it will also be a time for you to ask any questions related to physical education. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible!
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all parents and students in the PS 229 community back to the 2017-2018 school year! I look forward to working with you and your children. This is a blog area where I will post updates on what we are doing in class and anything related to our physical education program at PS 229! Thank you for visiting my website and I am excited about having this new form of communication.
