Welcome to Physical Education

Steve Maas Welcome to the gym, I am excited to be a central part of your student's education during my 26th year at The Children's House. Please reach out to me if you feel there is anything I could do to support your child more. I'd enjoy hearing from you.

I am excited to begin a new school year with your children. As we begin, the elementary and junior high students have been working on classroom agreements for expectations. We aim to finish and sign these early next week, it's been fun to listen and help them to determine the exact wording that they can all agree upon. One of the benefits of the students writing and signing this document is that it takes me out of most disagreements, students can simply remind a classmate of the signed agreement and carry on with the day. This almost always seems to help both parties. The things on the list range from agreeing to be respectful of materials and others, agreeing to wear appropriate footwear and to participate to the best of their ability. Their agreement will be available to review and share anytime they need it and is intended only to help everyone have an enjoyable time each day in the gym. Stop in and join the fun anytime you are in the building. I always check my email several times a day so please be in touch if you have questions of comments. I look forward to seeing or hearing from you!
