It is such a pleasure to welcome all the wonderful students back to school this year. My name is Mr. Portington and I will be teaching Health/PE classes with Mrs. Paz & Mr Stroka.
I look forward to getting to know your children and having them in PE this year.
The focus in Physical Education is to provide students with the ability
(1) learn the skills that they need to become competent movers
(2) view physical activity as meaningful and enjoyable
(3) confidence in participating in physical activity; &
(4) discover physical activities that cultivate the habits that lead to being active for a lifetime.
We accomplish that by having students participate in a wide variety of activities, sports, and challenges that will increase their physical, social, and mental abilities, as well as teamwork and cooperation skills. We hope to provide a safe, fun, and motivating class that will encourage all students to want to participate, have fun, and try their best.
I continuously set clear expectations for the students for each class in helping them succeed to become lifelong movers. I am looking forward to another great year here at Minue School. If you ever have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at school or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
