Oregon SHAPE Monthly

Society of Health and Physical Educators

April 2014

Hello Members!

This is the first issue of a monthly e-newsletter that will be coming your way. The following topics will be discussed:

  • Updates that are important and meaningful for members
  • Advocacy and teaching tips
  • Quality lesson plan ideas

We’re Moving!

It seems appropriate to report that the Oregon SHAPE Fall Conference is MOVING! In addition to being packed full of great movement activities, we’re also moving to a new date this year. We realize that fewer teachers have the option to attending professional conferences during Statewide Teacher Inservice day, since many school districts plan their own events. Therefore, we have decided to move the conference to the Saturday prior to inservice day.

Please plan on joining us at Linfield College on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2014.

If you are interested in submitting a session proposal, please use the form provided here. The Linfield venue provides opportunity for holding sessions in two gyms, a multipurpose/dance room, fieldhouse, fitness facility, and pool. Several fields are also available for physical activity presentations. In addition, we have three classrooms and a computer lab at your disposal. Special arrangements can be made if any presenters would like access to anatomy or physiology labs as well.

More details about the conference will be forthcoming in the next month. If you have questions about any aspects of the conference, you may contact Dawn Graff-Haight, the Oregon SHAPE conference manager, at dghaight@linfield.edu.
