Coach Sinon

Welcome!

Hello and Welcome!


My name is Chris Sinon and I have the pleasure of teaching your child in my 8th Grade Health course. Please feel free to contact me at school or by clicking my email address below. Also, feel free to go to our class website at www.coachsinon.weebly.com.


It's hard to believe that we just started the last 9 week session of the school year.


I look forward to hearing from you!

What's Going on in Health?

We are in our Safety and First Aid unit in 8th grade. Ask your student about what we are doing in 8th Grade Health Class. We are trying a new format this 9 weeks. The students have all their tasks for unit and they get to choose how they complete each task. All tasks can be completed in class or at home. The student's have choice and are self-pacing themselves. These two skills will serve each student well in the future. Our next unit is Nutrition/Healthy Eating.

Fitnessgram and the SHAPE Act

Georgia SHAPE begins with a basic, benchmark measurement of fitness among our students called FITNESSGRAM. The FITNESSGRAM tool used for SHAPE’s annual standardized fitness assessment evaluates five different parts of health-related fitness, including aerobic capacity, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition using objective criteria. It also generates reports providing valuable individual, school, and state-level data to empower parents, schools, and the community to best access the current health needs for children in Georgia. The report is delivered confidentially to families and aggregate results are reported to create a true “snapshot” and highlight areas for improvement. Watch this video from Georgia Governor Deal.
