It is such a pleasure to welcome all the wonderful students back to school this year. My name is Mr. Stith, I am new to the TJMS PE department. I look forward to getting to know your children and having them in PE this year. The goal of Physical Education is to teach students to develop healthy living habits that will last a lifetime. We accomplish that by having students participate in a wide variety of activities, sports, and challenges that will increase their physical, social, and mental abilities, as well as teamwork and cooperation skills. We will provide a safe, fun, and motivating class that will encourage all students to want to participate, have fun and try their best. Focused Fitness activities, health, nutrition, muscles, and bones are implemented into P.E. classes, as well as integrating Core subjects. The TJMS PE team continuously set clear expectations for the students for each class in helping them succeed to become lifelong movers! I am looking forward to a great year. If you ever have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your child’s PE teacher by email.
