  • JacobeMccoy Jan 29 @ 8:14 PM EST
    #espechat I am big into crossfit, has anyone done any type of functional fitness FFN? If so, were people receptive of it?
  • EPEWCP Jan 29 @ 8:14 PM EST
    A2: It would be a fantastic chance to advocate for your program. Get parents on your side. It would also help build the bridge between school and home. Might actually open the minds of some of the adults. #espechat
  • opfer_mr Jan 29 @ 8:14 PM EST
    Nice to see someone from the same course here #LULEARNS #espechat

    A2. its a great way to build community at your school. Its also a fun time to exercise with friends and family. #espechat
  • CoachFoe Jan 29 @ 8:14 PM EST
    #espechat A1 Used the whole school, classrooms gym library and hallways for activities geared for littles to adults. Cafeteria and hall for exhibitors, another hall for display of HPE student work. One activity Ss designed mini golf holes.

    I'd rather stay after than come back on the weekend. And some schools can't be opened on the weekends without admin or security. More work than necessary for me. #espechat

  • PE_Dillon_CSTAT Jan 29 @ 8:15 PM EST
    Q2 the benefits of hosting a family fun night is hard to choose one, but if I had to pick one it would be the collaboration that happens with the students, staff, and parents. With it all focusing on living a more physically active lifestyle. #espechat
  • opfer_mr Jan 29 @ 8:15 PM EST
    Thanks #espechat
    In reply to @SaraWoodPE, @RHEPE1

    A2 Getting parents involved and letting them see some of things you do in your program #espechat
    In reply to @RHEPE1
  • ILESPhysEd Jan 29 @ 8:16 PM EST
    A2 great way to advocate for #PhysEd and show parents the amazing learning going on in our classes. Also gives students the opportunity to teach their parents what they are learning #espechat

    I have one coming later which is exactly that. #espechat

    very true. #espechat
    In reply to @erik_myer
  • opfer_mr Jan 29 @ 8:17 PM EST
    A2. I believe it is a good way to advocate for ourselves if we don't no one will. Brings the community together as well. #espechat
  • PerkettPE Jan 29 @ 8:17 PM EST
    A2) Again, haven’t done one but I would guess it could help eliminate the stigma of the ‘gym teacher’ and show parents and the community what a quality #PhysEd program looked like in today’s schools. #espechat
  • RHEPE1 Jan 29 @ 8:17 PM EST
    A2: 1) Get to know your parents and students outside of the classroom. 2) Educate my parents on what is available in their community for family fitness. 3) Promote my program & advocate for the importance of #physed. #ESPEChat
  • smsandino Jan 29 @ 8:17 PM EST

  • PaigeBowen1240 Jan 29 @ 8:17 PM EST
    A2) I get to interact with parents and students in a different way than I do on a daily basis. I feel like we get to have fun together, and I am not really "ON" as far as classroom management and making sure I get through a lesson. #espechat

  • Lovettsvillepe Jan 29 @ 8:18 PM EST
    A2 It also gives a purpose of something to work towards instead of just because. Students rise to an occasion. #espechat
  • RHEPE1 Jan 29 @ 8:18 PM EST
    FFN's do help build the community. #espechat

  • CoachFoe Jan 29 @ 8:19 PM EST
    #espechat A2 Advocating for a quality HPE program. Parents, bd mbrs, community mbrs, state and local pols, business leaders attend and see what we do. It is not the PE they remember. These relationships are developed and allowed my Ss additional opportunities.
  • LovePrimaryPE Jan 29 @ 8:19 PM EST
    A2 I actually get to meet and get to know the parents. It helps me know their children. #espechat

    #espechat A2 I am a firm believer in relationships and the importance of building those relationships. You just have no idea the doors that can be open when you have developed a positive relationship.
  • smsandino Jan 29 @ 8:21 PM EST
    A2 It’s the opportunity to reach out and build relationships, advocate for your program and instill lifelong moving values as a family. The meaning behind it runs deep, it definitely promotes an active community which in turn helps with buy in! #ESPEchat
  • RHEPE1 Jan 29 @ 8:21 PM EST
    Mark, Solid points. Love showing our board members and business leaders how PE has progressed. #espechat Great opportunities.

    Q3: Have you hosted with other community groups? Any off site? Please share & explain. #ESPEChat
  • foes4sports Jan 29 @ 8:21 PM EST
    A2: IMO the more u can show adults activities that actually occur in #physed, the bigger the "win". Most have no idea what PE "looks like" today. ex. Mark had his kids show mini golf holes they created.Also, the reason "Bring your "adult" 2 PE" days are really valuable. #espechat

  • foes4sports Jan 29 @ 8:32 PM EST
    A3: Mark gets donations of healthy snacks from local grocery stores and tons of community health/sport/activity organizations are thrilled to get to have a table and are more than willing to staff it. Kids teach CPR using dummies obtained with a grant. #espechat
  • PaigeBowen1240 Jan 29 @ 8:32 PM EST
    A4) Art, music and PE collaborate at our school for a performance night done for each grade level. The students perform dances learned in PE, songs learned in music, and artwork displayed. Parents sit and watch at this event, rather than participate. #espechat

    #espechat A4...I want to make sure PE has a presence. Math nite I run a math scavenger hunt in the gym. Reading nite I run stations related to a Dr Seuss book. Each page is read and then activity performed that relates to that page in book. All movement based but doing math/read
  • SaraWoodPE Jan 29 @ 8:38 PM EST
    I was just thinking about how PE is usually interactive for parents, but music and art are more of a "show" or performance. This gives families more time to play together. #espechat

    A5) The fun run that we do is used as a fundraiser for PE. We sell tshirts. It doesn't make a ton of money. We started the fun run bc we wanted to get a climbing wall in our gym. It took us a few years, and our PTO chipped in for the last bit to get it. #espechat

  • EPEWCP Jan 29 @ 8:43 PM EST
    A6: I think how much time you have to be the leading force behind it, and also how much support you will have. If it is just you, without much help, you may want to start small. #ESPEchat
  • MrLosePE Jan 29 @ 8:43 PM EST
    A6 what resources do you need, how much $ will it cost, will PTA support for stations if necessary? Also want to think about how many people/safety considerations and keeping people hydrated/safe if it's overly warm out. Can't go wrong w/ providing healthy snacks! #espechat
  • TracyNSharlow Jan 29 @ 8:43 PM EST

  • smsandino Jan 29 @ 8:43 PM EST
    A5 No, not that I know of (my 3rd year at my site). Not sure it would fly as a fundraiser night since we have quite a bit of fundraisers with other groups on campus. The value in FFN is absolutely priceless though, something that can happen 1-3 times per year to start w #ESPEchat
  • CoachFoe Jan 29 @ 8:43 PM EST
    #espechat A5 Every yr I get donations from Pk Dist and YMCA and some businesses and got admin and donors ok to raffle off these items. Tickets were only 50 cents. Nice items: memberships, swim passes, fitness equipment, free classes, etc
  • RHEPE1 Jan 29 @ 8:43 PM EST
    A3: For the Nickelodeon World Wide Day of Play. This is where Nick goes off the air 1 hour on aSaturday. I would set up a mini field day w 12 stations that the families could run themselves. Great PR, great chance to meet & mingle with my families. #ESPEchat

  • RHEPE1 Jan 29 @ 8:46 PM EST
    A6) Space, Equipment, Time commitment, parents participating/observing, on/off site. Do you invite county superintendants? Do you invite board members or press? #ESPEchat

    A6) Our primary school (k-2) is on the same campus as the elementary school (3-5) and the middle school. So, for our fun run we don't have to go off campus at all. This was one reason we thought it would work. Plus we could do it ourselves. No worries about traffic. #espechat
  • Lovettsvillepe Jan 29 @ 8:47 PM EST
    A6. For our school Winterfest, students create "healthy" smoothie recipes prior. Our @FUTP60 team collects, collates and copies to a 1 pager 2 b shared. Then they pick 3 to make and serve as free samples. Not a big allergy concern b/c parents are present at event. #espechat

    A7 keep it simple the first time but over plan/prep for a worst case so nothing stresses out. Have more stations or volunteers than you need and expect more Ss to show up than probably will to make sure you don't have safety concerns or run out of space/equipment #espechat
