Starting April 2, 2020. We are currently using DISTANCE LEARNING in Microsoft TEAMS, until we are back in school. Please check your school emails for info on how to sign up and use TEAMS. Each grade for PE and Health has its own team. Check your email first and then contact your PE/ Health teacher with any remaining questions. Looking forward to seeing you in TEAMS!!!
What a few weeks we have had! We want to start out by saying that we have missed you all and that we are very excited, and nervous, to be moving into online learning. The teachers have been working very hard on learning how to teach virtually, even though we want to be face to face with all of you everyday. We are emailing all of you to explain how to connect with us through Microsoft Teams, see your upcoming assignments, turn in work, visit our office hours (and see us in person) and chat with classmates. That seems like a lot, but we know you can do it.
Everyone in this class is expected to participate in our daily activities that you will find on our Microsoft Teams site.
We are so bummed that we couldn't experience the Kids Heart Challenge Obstacle Course with all of you this year! Those who were registered will be able to participate in a 10- Day Virtual Challenge that will be emailed directly to the participants. Those at home who did not register, feel free to make your own safe obstacle course with an adult's supervision and join in the fun of celebrating and promoting healthy hearts. Our event will be over in the next few weeks. The directions, from the American Heart Association, on how to finish up your event is the link below. I will be ending the event on June 19th. All prizes will be sent to GFMS over the summer and will be distributed when we return. Please contact Mrs. Carinci with any questions. Can't wait to see everyone- Your PE teachers!

The Physical Education Department's mission to engage our students in lifetime activities that support them physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Lifetime Activities, as well as Team Concepts, are introduced in Physical Education in hopes to provide a lifetime of physical activity.
Activities offered in physical education:
Great ways to get moving outside of school:
Grade 5,6,7 and 8: (All Year Long)
5/6 will not be receiving locks/lockers and will not use the locker room
7/8 will receive a lock/locker but have the option to come in their attire or change before and after class.
Medical Excuses: In physical education, students are allowed to be excused from 3 consecutive physical education classes with a note from a parent/guardian. After 3 excused classes; a doctor’s note is required, which is required to be given to the nurse prior to class. The P.E. teachers will receive a copy of the note from the nurse. If a student is not feeling well that day, a note is required for the next class in order to be legally excused from the missed class. Written assignments/alternate assignment will be issued to students sitting out on medical, in place of their physical participation.
Number 1 Rule of Physical Education: HAVE FUN!!!!!
Physical Education No- No’s:
Locker Responsibility (7/8): Students are responsible for their lockers and locks. Any damage to these lockers is their responsibility. Master Locks are issued to every student, free of charge. If the lock is not returned at the end of the year, the student will be charged $5 to replace the lock. Other locks will not be allowed, because we need to have access to the locker in emergencies and provide combinations for the students if they forget it. We appreciate this cooperation greatly. We also encourage students to lock their locks every time they leave the locker room, this includes when the student is in class. Don’t leave anything out that is valuable. Students may leave valuables in the locked office. Students may not share lockers. This is for security purposes. The teachers will not go into the lockers, so if the students’ clothes are in someone else’s locker, we will not get them without the other student present.
Locker Room Rules (7/8):
