    We are excited to provide a classroom set of books for Health Class. Value UP was written by Mike Donahue and he has spent the last 30 years working with young people all over the world. His non-profit works to achieve "Raising the Value of Human Life."

    Heart Rate Monitors for PE! 
     
     
    We were also able to add 36 more wrist heart rate monitors for our PE Classes.  This is added on to the four we purchased last year for the trial run.

    Staff Wellness Opportunity! 
     
     
    And last but not least, the students waiting for rides home on the East side of the building had no wear to sit, so were purchased a sturdy picnic table. We are still working on the best way to secure it outside, so have been having fun with using it for projects and snack time in the counseling office.

    FHS Wellness Group: 

    Did you know we have a wellness group here at Falcon High School?

    Mr. Morris has been running a successful work out group every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 3:00pm- 4pm.  He has had a group of loyal followers all school year!  The core group is always welcoming new students and staff who want to come once in a while, or be a new core member!
     
    No experience required, no skill level required, all you need to do is meet in counseling at 3pm ready to work out. 
     
    Look at the fun they have been having all year!

    Falcon High School Wellness Committee enjoyed working with Principal Mrs. DeGeorge to have a hydration station installed in the academic wing of Falcon High School.  An unofficial survey showed that the majority of staff and students wanted a hydration station there in the wing. Thank you for all involved procuring and installing our station. We also have kept up the twice a week work out with Mr. Morris, all students and staff are welcome.

    Our commitment to physical activity

     

    • Physical education is provided in elementary, middle and high school.
    • Strenuous physical activity is not used (e.g. running laps, pushups) as punishment.
    • Generally, students should not be required to “sit out” any part of recess as punishment unless there is a safety concern.
    • Elementary school students will have a minimum of 30-minutes daily of physical activity. Recess for 1⁄2 day Kindergarten will be determined at those individual buildings.  Physical activity can include recess, physical education classes, fitness breaks, active classroom activities, exercise programs, or active field trips.
