Welcome to Mr. Jutton's Physical Education Class

Important update for the 20/21 school year:

Mr. Jutton and Mr. Thomas' classes will be using the Canvas platform for class.

 

 

Together we will get through these uncertain times.  

Daily exercise is an important part of maintaining a healthy immune system.
 

COVID-19 Update

We hope everyone and their families are healthy and well during this unprecedented situation. The virus is keeping us out of school, but that doesn’t mean we can’t stay active. On google classroom we’ve created an activity log that we’re asking you to fill out once a week. The goal is to find activities that you enjoy, can safely do independently (or with your family), and will help keep your body and mind active and healthy for the next few weeks.  As the weather gets warmer, we hope you can find some time to get outside while maintaining social distancing. Being physically active helps your immune system!

Some precautions to remember are: 

  • Wear comfortable clothing and sneakers during activity
  • Put on appropriate gear for the activity, such as helmets and protective pads
  • Always warm up before doing exercise and cool down afterwards to lower the risk of strains and sprains
  • Take appropriate breaks during the activity
  • Do not exercise with an empty stomach 
  • Drink small amounts of water just before and during activity, along with plenty of water after physical activity.
  • Listen to your body. Do not exercise if you are not feeling well.  If you feel dizzy, short of breath, or nausea while exercising stop the activity and let your parents know.
  • Keep social distancing -- do individual activities or activities with your family.

Philosophy of Physical Education

Physical Education is an essential part of students' educational experience.  It is the Physical Education Department’s mission to empower our students to reach their maximum potential academically, socially, and physically--through the modality of movement.  The curriculum is a sequence of learning experiences that includes RCSD’s core values and ensures student development of personal health, fitness, and citizenship that leads to a physically active lifestyle. 

 

Students are graded using a daily rubric along with an authentic assessment based on the New York State PE Profile for each unit of instruction.
