Physical Education Activities
It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words.  In the area of physical education, a photograph speaks echoes.  Each picture taken has a story.  Whether it shows improvement of an object control skill, students smiling while participating in exercise, or a core strength balance, each picture illustrates the hard work that my students put forth.  I have always told my students never to compare themselves to others. They should always strive for self-improvement.  Each picture that you see will make you smile, knowing that my students have fun and are increasing their physical activity levels.

Mileage Club
The Feelin' Good Mileage Club is an additional program added to Huron Valley Schools Physical Education. It provides an opportunity for students to gain more organized physical activity durning the school day. In order to increase physical activity levels, students jog or walk around a mileage club course during recess. To learn more, please visit the website listed below.

Jump Rope For Heart
Jump Rope for Heart (JRFH) is a fun event that helps children understand the importance of community service and physical activity. It is a jump rope program that helps raise awareness and money to fight heart disease and stroke. It is sponsored by the American Heart Association (AHA) and supported by the Huron Valley Schools' Physical Education Association.

Field Day
Field Day is an event that promotes increasing physical activity levels, a healthy lifestyle, constructive competition, compassion for others, as well as communication. I planned twelve events for students to participate.  With the help of students, staff, and parents this event was a success. Each picture represents a fun filled day of laughter and physical exercise.

ACES Day (All Children Exercising Simultaneously)
ACES is a one day youth exercise program intended to highlight the importance of and need for youth fitness. ACES has student participants from all 50 states and 50 countries.  Michigan Schools have joined together in large numbers to demonstrate their commitment to healthy lifestyles. 

Oxbow Community School helped Michigan celebrate worldwide ACES (All Children Exercising Simultaneously) Day on Wednesday, May 5, 2010 @ 10:00am. This helped to teach children the important roles that physical activity and proper nutrition play in healthy living.

ACES was founded by a New Jersey Physical Educator, Jean Saunders in 1989. Saunders wanted to encourage his students to be more physically active.  Today the program reaches millions worldwide.  Oxbow Community School students are part of the million committing to a healthy lifestyle.

Health and Nutrition are important areas of study -- promoting a beneficial lifestyle. Coupled with Physical Education activities, implementation of the CATCH Nutrition Curriculum has taught students the difference between "GO," "SLOW," and "WHOA" foods. In turn, they are making healthier food choices.

"GO" Foods: Almost Anytime
"SLOW" Foods: Sometimes
"WHOA" Foods: Once In A While

Information Technology
An online computer unit, for 7th grade information Technology, was created in order to act as another means of instruction (in addition to face-to-face teaching).  Posted on this website are examples of student work, along with descriptions of each assignment and tutorials (as well as other features). Students found the aforementioned information beneficial, as they worked hard to complete various assignments and projects.
