Welcome to Mr.Ecker's webpage

    • PE Department Mission:

    Our mission is to create a positive environment that promotes and motivates students to personally value a healthy and physically active lifestyle now and in the future.

    My goal is to provide your child with a safe and successful learning environment. In order for this to happen, students need to be dressed appropriately. Footwear and clothing are the biggest hindrances to being physically active. Sneakers are the only option for shoes; other types of footwear can cause safety concerns during class. PE is a more structured setting than recess, so students should dress accordingly.



    •  Grades:

    My belief is that students need to learn basic movement patterns, as well as fundamental skills. Your child will participate in a variety of activities and games that will give them numerous opportunities to practice these skills. I will be assessing their progress/mastery of these skills throughout the year. Their grade, however, will not be based solely on their skills. Several other key components will make up their grade.


    Students will be graded in the following areas:

    *Appropriate footwear                                 * Attitude/Sportsmanship/Teamwork

    *Participation/Effort                                      *Following Directions
