Lacrosse Test RETAKE

As I mentioned in last week's newsletter, students had four videos to watch that covered the basics of lacrosse (catching, passing, cradling, and shooting) and all four could be found on the class Edmodo page. Students had an entire week to watch the videos and then they were tested last Friday during class over those videos.

The grades from those tests were not great and as a result, I have decided to allow a retake on the test. Students were told today about it, but I also wanted you to be aware of it. The four videos remain on the Edmodo page, but I have also posted the test there as well. Students have the option to retake the test by Friday, September 25th. If they choose to retake the test, they will submit it via a direct message on Edmodo. I will then regrade and average the two together and that will ultimately be their lacrosse test grade. As I told the students today, it is completely optional for them.

This Week...

We are back up top this week in either the gym or on the outdoor basketball court as it's our week for fitness activities. This week, we kicked things off with Cardio Capture! The kids did phenomenally participating in the various fitness exercises that were called out before the start of each game! I even added a couple of throwback songs that everyone seemed to enjoy and got into: Cupid Shuffle & Cha Cha Slide!

Last Monday, students in my classes took part in the #5forPE Challenge that is from Athletes for Hope. The campaign is to bring awareness to PE being taken out of schools across the country at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. It challenges students to pick their favorite fitness exercises and complete 5 reps of them. I picked up on it via Twitter (@RTMSathletics) and we were immediately challenged by the organization. The students were very enthusiastic about it and ultimately, I took their hard work and turned it into a video, which has since been retweeted by the FCS Superintendent, Ken Zeff, and some major physical education organizations.
