Welcome to PE 2020 - 2021
Dear AMS Physical Education Students and Parents,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 Academy of Math and Science PE Program! Let me begin by thanking you for entrusting us to educate your children. It will be a great honor to teach them.
AMS has a reputation for excellence and the PE Program is no exception. Physical education provides cognitive content and instruction designed to develop motor skills, knowledge, and behaviors for physical activity and physical fitness. Students benefit from AMS’s excellent PE program in a multitude of ways: improved physical fitness, self discipline, development of student responsibility for health and fitness, moral development, leadership, stress and anxiety reduction, strengthened peer relationships, self-confidence, self-esteem, and respect.
Families play a vital role in helping students practice and apply the knowledge and skills they learn in PE class outside of school. Just like English and math, what a child learns about health and wellness at school needs to be practiced and reinforced at home. Parents are asked to help their students be properly prepared for PE class: come wearing appropriate clothing and shoes, bring a clear water bottle, eat, sleep, and hydrate well each day. This is where parental support and encouragement will be the key to your student’s success.
As a member of the AMS Physical Education Program, you are now a vital part of a winning team. However, as with any pursuit in life, one must put in an honest effort in order to expect honest results. I want the best for the students here at AMS Prince, and that is I will push them to be their best. I look forward to meeting with you and answering any questions you may have.
Looking forward to another great year!
