    YOU  ARE  NOT  FULLY  EDUCATED  UNTIL  YOU  ARE  PHYSICALLY  EDUCATED

     

    Hello and Welcome. We hope our site will keep you informed as to what your child will be doing during their participation in PE. Our goal is to build knowledgeable and healthy students who will stay active for a lifetime. We use a variety of activities to keep students interested and motivated in exercise to ensure our students are getting the maximum benefits of physical education.   

     

    Here are a few important things we want to share with you concerning PE at FFES:

     

    Ferry Farm Students should:

    • Try their best
    • Wear tennis shoes and proper P. E. attire
    • Cooperate with others
    • Be safe in all of their actions
    • Help their fellow students
    • Be polite and respect teachers and students

     

    PE Rules:

    • Be quiet when entering and leaving the gym area
    • Respect all indoor and outdoor P. E. equipment
    • Food, drinks, gum and candy do not enter the gym area
    • Wear tennis shoes and proper P. E. attire when participating
    • Keep hands and feet to yourself
    • Always show great sportsmanship
    • Do not leave the gym area without permission from a teacher
    • Respect others
    • "Whistle" - stop - look – listen
    • "Hand clap" - stop - look - listen

     

    Illness and injuries:

     Parents, please send a signed note by you or your child’s doctor stating whether your child should be completely exempt or allowed limited participation in P.E.

     

     Running Across Virginia:  VA map

    Students will run each PE class when the weather permits.  We will record their laps and convert their laps into miles as a class.  Students begin in Alexandria then work their way around the state, visiting at least one town in each of the regions of Virginia.  Classes will be rewarded with a free day and popsicle party when they run 1/3 of the way, then will receive shoe charms when they run 2/3 of the way and if they reach Cumberland Gap, they will receive another free day and popsicle party.  Maps of Virginia and the progress of each class are posted outside of the PE Room.

  • train race picture We had 115 students sign up for the  Great Train Race which helped us to win first place for participation and $500 for our school. Thank you for coming out on a Sunday morning to support our students and our school.  We had a beautiful day and all of our students finished their race.  We enjoy watching former and current Ferry Farm students run.

    The state of Virginia will no longer use the Presidential Physical Fitness test for testing students in physical fitness. As of 2006, the state of Virginia will use the FITNESSGRAM for student assessment in physical education.   The following assessments from the FITNESSGRAM will be administered to our students: Curl-ups, Push-ups, Pacer, Trunk lift and back saver sit and reach. For more information, click here: Fitness Gram website. or http://www.presidentialyouthfitnessprogram.org/resources/index.shtml

    SCPS has purchased a program that allows you to track your child's Physical Fitness Scores.  The scores will follow your child through high school.  You can go to the site below and look at your child's scores then you and your child can set goals for the year.  You will only see your own child's scores.  To log in, the USERNAME is your child's ID number (testing #) and the PASSWORD is his/her last name exactly as it appears.  If you need your child's ID number, please contact us for it.   We look forward to seeing what goals everyone sets for themselves.

    We want to extend a huge thank you to Chris Lynn. Mr. Lynn donated his time and expertise to build our school a great bridge to connect our two outdoor fields. This allows our school flexibility for special events as well as for our PE classes. Mr. Lynn you are always an eagle in our hearts.

    The bridge was used during the Eagle Flight Run on Friday, November 13.
