Mr. David Pirkle, Gym

Welcome to Physical Education Class 2018-2019!

I am Mr. David Pirkle, and I am currently going into my 4th year of teaching and my 2nd year at Fisher. I am excited to work with the St. John Fisher community and can't wait to see the smiles and enjoyment students bring to my class everyday! 

Friendly Reminder

Parents please have your children in proper gym uniforms with gym shoes. Preschool parents I would ask that we stay away from dresses and skirts during gym days. Thank you for your cooperation. 

(If students are not in proper uniform they will be asked to sit out.)

It has been a joy the past few weeks teaching students the fundamental skills of soccer. Students have been eager to learn and full of energy. We just finished up our soccer unit with the 1st-8th graders, and we started some of our fitness testing.

Our 1-8th graders will be completing the PACER (Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run). This test is designed to measure how long a student can stay on pace and what kind of shape they're in. Throughout the year we will be doing activities daily aimed to improve our scores on the PACER. We will retest sometime in the spring. 

Following completion of our PACER, 3rd-8th grade will be beginning their basketball unit. While our PreK-2nd grade enjoy some invasion games.
