Welcome Back

Welcome back everyone!  I'm excited to start another school year.  This year marks my 25th year teaching Health and Physical Education.  It is my 16th year teaching at OCS.  Although we are still be faced with many challenges, I know we will all work together and make it a great year!

We will get outside for PE as much as we can.  Students in grades 6-8 will change into gym uniforms for PE class.  As the weather changes, students may bring a sweatshirt.  The grass is usually wet for early morning classes.  Students may also bring a change of socks and shoes.  Another good hygiene tip is deodorant for after class.  Deodorant must be stick or roll-on type.  Aerosol sprays of anykind are not allowed in school.

For Health class, students should be prepared as they would for all their other academic classes.  Arrive for class ready to work with a positive attitude.

If you need to reach me at school, email is the fastest (  You can also reach me at 453-4101 x2104.  I usually don't get a chance to check my phone messages until the afternoon.  I look forward to working with you all!

A Few Things.....

Monday, April 26, 2021 we return to school for 5 days a week.  As we welcome all students back into the building, there will be schedule changes.  Our in person students will have two physical education classes and one health class per week.  They will no longer need to TURN IN assignments in google classroom.  Those students who are remaining fully virtual will still receive assignments to complete in google classroom.  Health work will also be sent home for some grade level students.  

Next week is the mid marking period for the 4th marking period.  Please make sure any assignments that have not been turned in are completed and TURNED IN for credit.

Finally, please make sure to support our 8th graders by ordering food from Cafe 57.  Flyers went home earlier this week.  Their cinnamon buns are AMAZING!!!

 EcoChallenge - MHCC Sustainable Saints Feed

I hope everyone had a relaxing spring break!  The end of the school year will be here before we know it.  Please continue to work hard  and turn your work in on time.  

As the weather continues to improve, I will try to get my classes outside as much as possible.  Please be prepared to go outside for PE from now till the end of the school year!  Most days students will be on the blacktop along Church Street.  A sweatshirt or light jacket may be needed for the earlier morning classes.  

If you have any questions, feel free to email me,  Have a great week everyone!

Spring Break starts this week...

These next two weeks are short weeks.  For this reason we have combined them into one week.  Students will only need to fill out one daily exercise log.  You will see this posted in their google classroom as "Week #29 & #30- Phys. Ed. Only".  No work is assigned for the students' days off!  Everyone needs a break.  Please enjoy the time off to relax and "reboot."  The end is almost in sight!!!  Have a safe and relaxing spring break everyone!
