Welcome to Belair K-8!
Happy first days of school!
I hope this finds everyone doing well and excited about the new school and upcoming activities we will be participating in.
Health classes (6th, 7th & 8th) will be learning how to take care of our bodies, making positive decisions for a healthy future, and decision/problem/confrontation solving skills. Other topics will be Abstinence, disease prevention, nutrition, personal safety/wellness and self-esteem/displaying a confident "you."
Physical Education (6th & 7th) will participate in a number of sports and activities. We will begin with FitnessGram (pre-assessment) to determine the physical strengths and weaknesses of each student. We will continue to strengthen our bodies throughout the year so that everyone can be successful at the end of course Fitnessgram test. Sports that can be covered are: baseball/softball, basketball, tennis, volleyball, badminton, table tennis, shuffleboard, and kickball. However, these are not the only sports we offer; opportunities may arise so that we are able to play others.
Personal Fitness (8th grade only- for high school credit) will participate in book content as well as a physical aspect. Learning about the body helps a student to utilize and take care of their body better. We will be learning about muscle groups, skeletal and other body systems, as well as performing a physical assessment every two weeks. This physical assessment consists of ten exercises that will be done for 1 minute. Every two weeks, we hope to see and increase in the sets performed in each activity.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
I look forward to working with you and your children this school year.
