My name is Matt Barker. I am the physcial education teacher for Ward, Ewing, and Hillsboro elementary schools. The SPARK curriculum is incorporated in my all of my physcial educational classes. In the primary grades we focus on healthy lifestyles, motor skills, movement knowledge, and social and personal skills through week long units. In the intermediate grades we focus on individual skills, team games, cooperation, healthy life choices, and physical education concepts.
The children LOVE the games and activities in the week long units. Please make sure your child wears tennis shoes on P.E. days. This is to insure the safety of our children.
Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions.
Please read the following information over our SPARK curriculum and 2nd-6th fitness testing information.
