Letter to In-School Physical Education Classes (6th-8th grade):

Welcome to OMS Physical Education. I know that 2020 has brought us all some tough challenges. During Phase 2, you will be a part of both At-Home and In-Person Classes. For our In-Person Classes, we are going to structure our classes as normal as possible, while abiding to the CDC guidelines.  Per the CDC guidelines, we will limit and structure locker room time, maintain social distancing, wear mask, wash hands/sanitizer, limit and disinfect equipment.

Our goal for this class is to improve the health of each student and to develop a daily workout routine. During this quarter, each student will perform the following: daily exercises, weekly fitness tests, P.A.C.E.R. tests a timed mile run, and introduction to a variety of sports, while demonstrating good sportsmanship.

IN-School and At Home Grading Procedures:

In Person Classes (2 days per week):  Students will be graded by the following.

  • Daily Exercises
  • Daily Sports Activity
  • Weekly Fitness test
  • P.A.C.E.R. Test

*Typically the students will get a dress out grade, while this pandemic is going on, we will give our students options to dress. While our classes are small, we are going to allow the students who choose to dress out, dress out. We will be using social distancing and masks will be required.

At Home (3 days per week):  Students will be graded by the following.

  • Daily Exercises:

    When you are at home learning (3 days per week), you will continue do your 4 daily exercises. Which is 30 seconds of the each of the following exercises: push-ups (regular or from your knees), sit-ups, jumping jacks (or jump rope, if you have one), and mountain climbers. We will do the weekly fitness test while you are at school.

  • 30 Minutes of Physical Activity:

You will also document 30 minutes of physical activity each day. This can be any activity that gets your heart rate up, such as jogging, dancing, walking the dog, floor work out, playing sports, riding a bike, etc. You are required to do least 30 minutes a day. Keep up with the activity you do and how long you do it EACH DAY. You will have to turn in this in weekly. Try to find activities you enjoy!

We are looking forward to a healthy school year!!!
