Saint Thomas Catholic School

PE and Health

Hello STS Families,


A lot has been happening in Physical Education at St. Thomas!  The students have completed a football unit and running unit in the last several weeks.  In football the classes covered throwing, catching, punting, handoffs, and at the older grades blocking was introduced.  When the games started the focused work on skills was evident.  Watch out Tom Brady, OBJ, Drew Brees – the STS Tigers are on their way!

In the running unit students worked on increasing their endurance through several timed runs over the course of several weeks.  Chasing and Fleeing games were also used to promote more anaerobic endurance.  It was good mix for the students and worked hard.

“Love the Lord…with all of your mind.”  We are currently discussing the brain in Health.  Students are learning major parts and functions of the brain.  We will also look at how concussions occur and how they affect the brain.
