Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! We are excited for another year of Personal Fitness and Health classes (grades 6-12) at ISG-Jubail. The big change for us this year is adding Mr. Bruno Penner to our team. He is the new Director of Athletics and Head of the PE department as well as teaching classes. He has provided his biography here, so please take some time to learn more about him.
While the team has been changed, the overall goal of our PE program remains the same. Our main focus continues to be personal fitness and health. The course description and other useful information can be found here. Your child's fitness is what drives our instruction. Furthermore, there will be emphasis put on goal setting and reflecting on the process of achieving their goals. There also will be time in most classes for individual practice, whether it is to work on a specific sports skill or on creating their own workouts.
Ultimately, the students' overall grade will be based on their individual improvement. We are not a standards based program, though it is possible to achieve the Presidential Physical Fitness award, which is indeed a standards based program. These benchmarks are found here.
