    Welcome to Physical Education, from Ms. Fleck!

    Welcome to McDonald International School’s Physical Education! This is an exciting place to be! My name is Ms. Fleck (she/her), and this is my 7th year at McDonald. My teaching mission is to help students gain the knowledge, skills and confidence for a lifetime of physical activity and health. I love teaching P.E. and it is an honor to get to work with your students. In my classroom I play music and have fun, but there are always tons of learning going on every day in all three domains: cognitive (thinking), affective (social/emotional), and psychomotor (physical/kinesthetic.)

    In April 2021, while many students and teachers have returned to school buildings, P.E. will continue to be delivered remotely. When it is your child’s P.E. week, they will have live instruction on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays using MS Teams. On Fridays, there is a Seesaw activity for students to do, to complete their week.

    Here is the current P.E. schedule:

    April 19-23 – Week B
    April 26-30 – Week C
    May 3-7 – Week A
    May 10-14 – Week B
    May 17-21 – Week C
    May 24-28 – Week A
    May 31–June 4 – Week B
    June 7-11 – Week C
    Special Schedule for June 14-17

    State P.E. standards

    For each grade level, students are taught lessons aligned to these five Washington State standards:

    Standard 1: Students will demonstrate competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns.

    Standard 2: Students will apply knowledge of concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics related to movement and performance.

    Standard 3: Students will demonstrate the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness.

    Standard 4: Students will exhibit responsible personal and social behavior that respect self and others.

    Students will recognize the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and social interaction.

    Tips on supporting your students during remote instruction:

    1. Make time to laugh and move each day.
    2. Ask your kids about their PE Seesaw page, that shows their response to the weekly PE activity.
    3. Kids are watching to see how we deal with stress. Hang in there!
