We are thrilled to announce the Elementary physical education department has implemented the IHT Spirit System, a new technology which engages students in the latest heart rate monitor and assessment technology available today. Students are provided heart rate monitors to wear in PE classes which provide instant feedback on their effort. The monitors also engage and educate students on activities that optimize cardiovascular endurance, stamina, flexibility, speed, core strength, power, coordination and self-confidence. Both students and parents receive feedback when classes end through emailed reports.
In addition, the Spirit Curriculum - Student Resources encourages students to keep a journal and complete worksheets throughout the semester that include fitness, nutrition, and self-awareness lesson work. These resources help our staff to better engage with our students and their families in order to best support them in all aspects of life.
