All assignments and deadlines can be found as links under the sidebar at right -->

When students are absent, they should check the calandar link for the correct grade, then check any assignments that they missed in the assignment link.



This is our first year with an advanced health elective.  It will be an advanced fitness class, and it will feature extreme functional training (think CrossFit).  This type of training is very individualized, so each student will work at his or her own level and pace.  Classmates will be required to encourage each other and do their best. 

Daily format:  FUEL- MOVEMENT- RECOVERY  (nutrition info/healthy snacks- workout- yoga-based stretching)

Each student will be required to complete 2 projects approved by me.  Some of these include: any trialthon (including the Lake Harriet one), an act in the kinesthetics assembly, creating a healthy snack for everyone in class, signing up for and training toward the Mpls Spartan Sprint June 22, leading the class in a 45-minute yoga practice, or any individual performance I approve.

Students need athletic shoes for class.
