Update on criteria for class and Virtual Meetings

I know the times are tough right now. Keeping up with you health is a must (physically and mentally). It’s hard being cooped up inside but there are things that can be done to help out with this. Weekly meetings will consist of helping out with this. We will meet and share ideas, check in and make sure you are understanding what is expected and give several ideas to keep up with your log.

In order for you to receive a Pass in this class we are asking you to create a “Fitness Log” either on Google Doc or a piece of paper. You need to make sure you are getting 30-60 minutes 5 times a week of physical activity, and writing/ typing it in your log. NEXT WEEK we will be discussing where you will be uploading your log weekly.

It is also required for you to attend the weekly meetings on https://meet.google.com (your codes were emailed to you twice, if you didn’t receive them please email me so I can get that to you. (This being a public forum I do not want to share those here).


Mondays 6th Grade 4:30-5:30

Tuesdays 7th Grade 4:30-5:30

Wednesdays 8th grade 3rd hour 4:30-5:00 6th hour 5:00-5:30

If for whatever reason you miss, do not understand something, feel like you would like to talk outside of the virtual class, or have any questions feel free to email me and we can set something up to virtually meet or if I can help you through email I am happy to help! suttlen@dearbornschools.org

Virtual Class Meetings

Depending on your grade level we will be having video lessons once a week, using google meet. We will start off as a grade level for the first week and then we we split up based on classes for the second and following weeks. You will either need to download the google hangout meet app (on your iPad) and sign in with your school email or you will sign into your google email online and then go to https://meet.google.com. Once you are there you will click “Join a meeting” and you will enter the nickname of our meeting, and you will be added to the meeting.

Starting day is after our scheduled spring break so April 13th.

Mondays will be 6th grade from 4:30-5:30pm

Tuesdays will be 7th grade from 4:30-5:30pm

Wednesdays will be 8th grade from 4:30-5:30pm

Your meeting nickname will be emailed to you!

I am also wondering if on the second week if anyone wants to jump on and catch up or has any questions or needs any help on Fridays maybe we can have a session for anyone who would just like to jump on and chat/ or workout (This wouldn’t be required, just for fun!)

Also remember I am using Instagram daily. I have ideas for workouts and things to try. Apps that are free to download and use at this time. Also just some extras to try and keep a healthy mindset and stay positive. If you don’t have an Instagram I would ask your parents if you can sign up and follow me!

A letter to my students…

Good evening girls. I apologize for taking a while to post but, I was trying to figure out a way that I could reach all of you without you having to keep checking my blog. I realize you probably have other subjects that you need to focus on but, I am still here and your health is also very important. Even tho you will not be graded on things that I will be posting or asking of you I want you to know that I will be here for you and hopefully you will learn some skills to coping with our current situation. I want you all to know if you need anything, have any questions or just want to talk feel free to email me. I know this is going to be a very trying time for all of us. Some of you may not feel effected yet but we do not know what the future holds and we do not know how long this is going to last. We are in this together.

If you do not have a printer to print out a physical activity log you can just as well grab a piece of paper with three columns. #1 with the date, #2 type of activity, #3 how long did you do this activity for. I would like you to keep track even if it was cooking dinner one day or making a workout for tomorrow. Write it down. When we return we will use it for some credit! Also The end end of the quarter is Wednesday. If you need a bump in your grade you are able to go to kids health.org and go to the kids or teen tab. If you read an article and email me a CER tomorrow I will be able to give you extra credit 🙂

So I miss you all very much and I am having a hard time being at home this much. A way I feel like I can reach out to a lot of you is going to be through instagram!! If you have one please follow me lowrey_pe I will be posting information anywhere from mental health to some healthy recipes, people to follow, at home workouts and hoping to help keep you positive throughout all of this. If you do not have instagram I will try and post here as well. I hope you all are doing well and staying busy at home with your families.

Covid19 Shut Down Assignment

During this time off we need to remember to stay healthy (physically and mentally). Please make sure you are staying active (30-60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity each day). When we return to class be prepared to reflect on the amount activity and type of activity that you did over this break. I would suggest printing off an activity log (Google) to keep a record of these on paper so it is easier for the reflection.

Here are some resources that you should find helpful. (Google, YouTube, Apps in the app store)
