• Kids show off fitness watches

    The Elementary Physical Education Department is thrilled to announce they have implemented a new physical educational technology and curriculum system called the IHT Spirit System. This new technology will engage your child in the latest heart rate monitor and assessment technology available today.

    The Spirit System is a web-based assessment system that uses heart rate monitors that your child will wear in PE class. The heart rate monitors are designed specifically for physical education to help student gain instant feedback on their effort. They will also engage and educate students on a variety of fitness activities that optimize cardiovascular endurance, stamina, flexibility, speed, core strength, power, coordination and self-confidence. In addition, you and your child will receive feedback as soon as class ends, through emailed reports.

    The IHT Spirit System is designed to lend a hand to both teacher and student. Our department goals are to help your child better understand their own health and take ownership of their overall well-being for life. We also want to integrate tools like the Spirit System to assist our efforts in measuring the effectiveness and success of our physical education program. We look forward to working with you and your child during the semester ahead.
