Course Overview

Physical Education (Mr. Scappe)

      I am so excited to be you son or daughters Physcial Education teacher this year at Blackhawk Intermediate School.  I have a lot planned this school year for grades K-4 and look forward to the time I get to spend with each student this year.  On gym days if you could do me a huge favor and please make sure that your kids are wearing appropriate gym clothes and shoes.  Without the proper shoes or clothing could become a safety issue for themselves or other students in their class!  
     Physical Activity is important for the development and upkeep of a childs overall health.  Therefore the Physical Education course at Blackhawk Intermediate School is designed to provide opportunities for students not to only stay active during class but to help them gain exposure to various activities that they would like to continue to do outside of class.  Students will participate in various games and sports, team activities, fitness activities and things they can continue to do throughout their lives.  Students learn to improve their skills with their hand-eye and foot-eye coordination along with working on various locomotor movements.   The ability to improve in these different areas will help enhance enjoyment in physical activity and help lead a healthy lifestyle for them.
Students grades are calculated by using a Pass/Fail
If for some reason your son or daughter is unable to participate in gym please have them bring a note or doctors excuse to school with them.  
I will also be running a Field Day towards the end of the school year, which is a great fun time that all students look forward too!
