Hello! My name is Mr. Jager and I am now in my 12th year of teaching, all here at Viking Middle School. Teaching physical education is a great opportunity to show my passion for fitness, sports, kids, and teaching the benefits of being active to your son or daughter. Please feel free to call or email me at any time if you have any questions. Thanks!
As we start the school year I am very excited to begin my first unit with the students. However, first we have to get through the fun week of orientation, handing out locks and uniforms, and helping the student memorize their 2nd combination. However, this year will be fill with a lot fun activities, fitness, and I am sure a lot of laughter.
Our weeks in PE are going to be a little different than in the past. Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays will be unit days. Each teacher will have their class participating in a specific unit as per usual. Every Wednesday will be workout Wednesdays! We will be doing something fitness related and once a month we will be running the pacer test (progessive aroebic cardiovascular endurance run). Fridays will be fun Fridays. We will be partcipiating in a group game with all classes. However, it will also be make up day. If a student chose to not dress in their gym clothes or rent a uniform, they will make up the day on Friday by completing a workout instead of being able to participate in the group game.
Lets get started!!!
