It is the philosophy of the staff at Owen J. Roberts Middle School that students be exposed to many different options when it comes to physical fitness and health. With that in mind, the curriculum is set up in a way to offer a variety of activities in both 7th and 8th grade. 7th grade students will have both Mr. Dede and Ms. Staufenberg as their teachers during the year.
Physical Education in 7th grade involves 4 different "courses within the course". Each student will have one marking period of Physical Education, two marking periods of Swimming (Swim 1 and Swim 2), and one marking of Health/Fitness (a combination of classroom education and fitness room activities). The best way to find out what your son/daughter has during the year is to look on Skyward for the class location. If the location is "Gym" then they are in Physical Education, "Pool" is for Swimming, and "165" is Health/Fitness in the health classroom.
Obviously, the current situation will require modifications to our normal program. We will do our best to provide meaningful and relevant content through our virtual platform until we are able to return to a regular school schedule.
Any student who has "Pool" listed on their schedule for the 1st marking period ("Q1Y") will follow the following schedule for the school year:
1st Marking period: Swim 1 - Ms. Staufenberg
2nd Marking period: Health/Fitness (meets in room 165) - Mr. Dede
3rd Marking period: Swim 2 - Ms. Staufenberg
4th Marking period: Physical Education (meets in the gym) - Mr. Dede
Students who have "165" is listed as the location for the 1st marking period ("Q1Y") will have the following schedule for the school year:
1st Marking period: Health/Fitness (meets in room 165) - Mr. Dede
2nd Marking period: Swim 1 - Ms. Staufenberg
