new school year

Posted on Sep 09, 2020

 

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to the new school year. I am excited to 

see all the students back in the building . Even though 

things are a little different, I am excited about all the

possibilities that we have in front of us.

Gym will be different this school year, at least at the

beginning.  Limited equipment usage will be in effect

for the time being but we will work around this rule by 

playing games that do not require much equipment.

Hopefully, things will be back to normal soon and

we all can move forward. Stay active and eat healthy!!

E-Learning with Mr. Mulchrone

Posted on Mar 20, 2020

Dear Parents and Students, with schools across the country dismissing for weeks due to COVID-19, parents and students have been thrust into the world of online or virtual learning. While academics are forefront in e-learning we must value the need to promote our physical and mental health. I've compiled the following resources to guide families and students at home to promote healthy living.

Allow for breaks – Online learning takes tremendous focus and brain power, so you are going to need to allow for breaks. These breaks should provide some physical activity. Activity can be simple, such as stretching, going for a walk, or using one of the included activities. Younger students will need more frequent breaks.

New Year Blog

Posted on Jan 07, 2020

Happy New Year, Fisher Falcons! Welcome to the start of 2020. I have enjoyed working with all of your students this year, and I look forward to the start of a new decade for SJF Physical Education.

In the new year, our focus across all grade levels will be to:

- create a space for teamwork and collaboration

- strengthen the fundamental skills needed for physical well-being

- foster a positive, can-do attitude

As always, safety is our number one priority. It is important that students are held accountable for their behavior to ensure that everyone is able to learn in a safe, secure and positive learning environment.

With this in mind, the following disciplinary policies will be effective immediately for students in grades 5th-8th.

Minor Infractions:

Minor infractions include (but are not limited to) not following directions, failure to stay on task, talking out of turn, etc.

First Infraction will result in a verbal warning from the teacher.

Second Infraction will result in the issuing of a demerit.

Major infractions:

Major infractions include disrespect of any kind and any action that jeopardizes the safety of any member of the class. This includes misuse or damaging of gym material, physical contact towards another student, blatant disregard for the safety of other students. (An example of this would be throwing a ball at another student’s head)

Any major infraction will immediately result in a detention and a phone call/e-mail to the parent.

Positive Reinforcement

Ultimately, I believe that positive reinforcement is the best way to reward exemplary behavior. Students who meet all expectations will be rewarded with Falcon Tickets that can go toward our all-school positive behavior initiative “Super Falcons” where students are recognized monthly for exemplary behavior.

Most importantly, my hope is that students will have fun and enjoy their time in Gym Class. Through teamwork, positivity and safe behavior we can ensure a positive experience in 2020 and beyond.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact me at the school office or via email at wmulchrone@sjfschool.net
