RSU 18 PE teachers have found some great ways to keep students active and moving during the stay at home order. PE teachers across the district have been offering resources, posting fitness challenges, and using Zoom meetings to connect with their students. Mr. Engleright has been holding Zoom fitness sessions three times a week and Mr. Quirion has been posting weekly physical activity videos on his website. He even posted a couple of guest videos from former RSU 18 PE teacher Scott Colby.
In addition to all the online offerings, they have also been trying to supply students with sports equipment. Mr. Colby suggested that Atwood make jump ropes available to students with their educational packets and the idea has been growing from there. Atwood and Bean are now offering jump ropes, frisbees, and tennis balls for students to engage in the spirit of play at home.
