Recent Posts

The PE girls have begun their basketball unit. We have covered chest and bounce passing, shooting form and lay-ups, and several penalties.  Please open the attached basketball review in your PE class period. We have already covered several of these questions in class and will continue to address more as their unit progresses. The PE girls will need to complete the attached review sheet and turn in the hard copy Tuesday, December 6.  We have or will be handing out a hard copy of this review to all our PE girls.  They can complete on their own, ask siblings, parents, or use the internet.  
 
Along with covering basketball we will continue to do strength and conditioning activities on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Please bring inexpensive sweat top and bottoms to PE to lock up in PE lockers for days we go outside on the track for running. 

Gray is a pretty site to see

Thank you parents and guardians for purchasing your PE student their gray t-shirt.  We look sharp dressed as one team unit of energized young ladies. The gym is being filled with warm up exercises, conditioning, and volleyball activity. The girls are to bring their PE clothing home on Fridays to launder and bring back on Mondays.  But not this coming Monday, Sept. 5, as we should be home resting and having more family time on Labor Day.

First Week of School

During the first week of school Mrs. Douty's PE girls will go over classroom procedures, changing information and grading. Locker room and gym expectations will also be covered. The girls will be given an order form to use to purchase their PE t-shirt.  Forms and money (cash or check payable to BMS) will be collected with the PE shirts handed out on Friday.  The girls will begin changing into their PE clothing on Monday, August 26th.  Please do not bring clothing and shoes to PE until their PE lockers have be assigned for the girls to attach their combination locks. By Thursday girls can bring their personal hygiene products, along with their clothing, socks, and athletic shoes to be stored in their LOCKED PE lockers. 
 
On the right you will find the PE classroom procedures page. Also, instructions to sign up for PE Remind.  Please take a moment to read procedures and sign up for PE Remind.

Introduction to Athletics Clinic

Our Brabham female coaching staff will be hosting an "Introduction to Athletics Clinic" for girls interested in Athletics for next year. The clinic will be 3 days, May 2,3, and 4, after school to 4:00.  Please see the information letter to the right.

Jump Rope

 

Our PE girls are designing their own jump rope routine from a list of 12 different footwork jumps.  They can use their personal devices for appropriate music to jump to.  We have 3 speaker systems the girls can share.  If a PE student has a portable speaker they want to bring and use this is fine as long as parental permission has been given.  Please have name on speaker.   The girls will continue to develop and  fine tune their routines Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 20, 21.  Beginning Friday, Jan. 22 the groups will be graded.
 
This freedom of choosing groups, designing the routine, and finding music has been a good experience on communication.  The girls are learning how to express their ideas, listen to others, and voice their opinions. Most are experiencing positive results. A few are figuring out that compromise is necessary to allow the whole group to work together as one unit.  Others are learning that expression of opinion needs be worded thoughtfully to not offend their teammate.
 
I enjoy watching your daughters develop physically, socially, and emotionally. Thank you for sharing them with me on a daily basis.

Basketball unit

The girls completed their volleyball unit early November and have moved to basketball while continuing their running activities on Mondays and Wednesdays.
 
We are beginning a basketball unit.  Instead of me verbally or physically demonstrating rules, skills, and court markings I am also handing out a questionnaire for the girls to complete.  I will be discussing or showing all questions in PE for the girls.  Also, they can work on it at home, asking parents or siblings who play basketball for help or use the internet.
 
The completed basketball questionnaire will be counted as a major grade, 60%. The assigned date was November 9th with a turn in date of November 16th. The questionnaire is on my webpage to print out in case the original handout has been misplaced.  Please make every effort to complete the questionnaire and turn in by Friday November 20th for partial credit.
