I had the honor of presenting to all elementary
physical education teachers during Teacher Institute Day in August. I shared
what the elementary physical education team worked hard to create the last two
years: building a new physical education curriculum. I was very fortunate to
work alongside an amazing team of fellow teachers to create the new curriculum:
The institute day started with a demonstration
on how to maneuver around the new elementary P.E. staff website and explaining
how we broke everything down in the new curriculum.
The new elementary P.E. website for employees has:
-Website resources for teachers
-A resource to buy equipment
-A thorough breakdown for each grade level K-5
with the following:
-Assessment & pacing guide
-Learning targets checklist
that go with each “I can” statement and the Big Three
In the afternoon, the elementary physical
education teachers paired up and created an activity/game using the new lesson
plan organizer. Each group presented the activity/game to their peers, and we
recorded it so the teachers could see it. They are helping add to the curriculum
game library that the team already started to create. It was a very eventful
day of learning and collaboration. I can’t wait to see what happens next with
the new elementary physical education curriculum. This is just a glimpse at how
RPS 205 teachers work together to create a better future for our students.
I want to extend a sincere thank you to our families for making a timely decision to help us plan.
Schools are still missing some registration packets for the 2020-21 school year, so each school will host a limited in-person registration event.
Registration packets for the 2020-21 school year were mailed to all RPS 205 families earlier this summer.
If a family does not submit the survey, students will – by default – be enrolled in in-person instruction, and transportation will not be provided.
You will be asked to complete an electronic survey to make your choice for either full-time remote instruction or in-person instruction for the upcoming school year.
