FRES PE Teachers: Coach F and Coach K

Welcome back Panthers!!! Fort Rucker Elementary School PE Department is super excited to be rolling right along in our new academic year! Coach F and Coach K are currently finishing up baseline testing for the 2013-2014 school year so that students and parents stay informed about the fitness levels, are able to be informed when setting personal long and short-term goals, and will be able to visualize their individual success after spring Fitnessgram testing.Please stay active with your children! These are great activities to work on together at home and we always encourage parents to come play with us during class J

Special’s Syllabus

As it is one of FRES’s main goals to strive for continuous improvement, the specials department is making some great improvements to provide quality education to each of our students! Included below is some important information to keep in mind throughout the year J

Class Descriptions and Need to Knows:

FRES immerses students into an environment rich in experimentation and problems solving. Through a variety of tools, techniques, and processes, students grow in confidence and creativity while learning to apply knowledge gained in all categories of their lives, to the world that will surround them in their futures. Our goal is to help students discover the importance of embracing the world through movement, socialization, teamwork, and individual expression. All are central to the education and growth of the whole child. Students will meet with art and music one hour per week, and depending on grade level 2-3 hours for PE per week. Please have your student come prepared to class and ready to work. This does include tennis shoes for PE.

Grading Scale: All specials will be graded consistently by using the below grading.

E 90-100% Exceeds grade-level expectations/Consistently Observed
M 80-89%  Meets grade-level expectations/ Occasionally Observed
S 70-79%  Steady progress toward grade-level/ Infrequently Observed
below-69% Unsatisfactory

Daily Points Breakdown:

Each student can earn up to 4 points in each specials class for the following categories: Behavior (1pt.), Participation and Preparedness (1 pt.), and Skill (2 pts.)

Promoting Our Expectations: All specialists will encourage the following B.E.S.T.!

  1. Be respectful and safe, listen carefully, and follow directions.
  2. Encourage creativity in yourself and others.                                    
  3. Show your best! Give 100% everyday, all day long!!! Participation, behavior, and effort count!
  4. Take care of yourself and your area: materials, equipment, art supplies, instruments, and personal hygiene.

Each 9 weeks, parents will receive a skills checklist briefly rating their abilities to meet the standards set upon us by DODEA. Our goal is to provide a better picture to each individual’s abilities in our classes.
