Welcome!

Dear Parents and Students,

 

Welcome back to East Junior High P.E. The Physical Education department here at east strives to create an environment that is structured, high quality, and helps students become physically literate. Physical literacy is the ability to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person.

 

According to the CDC, physical education provides cognitive content and instruction designed to develop motor skills, knowledge, and behaviors for physical activity and physical fitness. Supporting schools to establish physical education daily can provide students with the ability and confidence to be physically active for a lifetime.

 

There are many benefits of physical education in schools. When students get physical education, they can:

  • Increase their level of physical activity
  • Improve their grades and standardized test scores
  • Stay on-task in the classroom
  • Increased time spent in physical education does not negatively affect students’ academic achievement.

 

The East Jr. High School Physical Education program offers students a variety of interesting and enjoyable educational activities, which will contribute to your physical fitness, wellness and health, athletic skills, emotional growth, social development, and well-being. Through active participation, you will realize the enjoyment of acquiring and accomplishing new skills and develop interest in physical activities which will make you a lifetime mover.  Physical education is a very important part of your educational process. 

 

The Physical Education Staff is always available to answer questions, discuss any aspect of our program, or review an individual student’s progress.  We look forward to making this an exciting and memorable year for all of our Physical Education students.

 

Respectfully,

 

Kadajae Blayde
