Falcon High School Wellness

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.
