Mr. Shook's Physical Education classes 

Dear Community Members,
 In our Physical Education classes at Philo Jr. High School, we cover a wide variety of activities. These activities include individual and team sports. Our daily routine includes stretching, running, push-ups, sit-ups and activities. We have recently finished our Speedball unit and currently we are involved in our PARCC assessments. With four weeks to go, we have much to cover before the end of the nine weeks.

With spring around the corner and summer following right behind, encourage your child or children to be active and to participate in a variety of activities. Check your local organizations and get them involved in your local leagues and school sports programs.

Mr. Lewellen's 7th grade Math 

In Mr. Lewellen's class, students are learning the Pythagorean Theorem and how it relates to real life events. Students have also been classifying triangles and are beginning the process of classifying quadrilaterals. Daily PARCC questions are being given as we close in on the first round of testing. We will soon begin reviewing concepts from the entire year so far to best prep for these assessments.

Mr. Woodard 7th grade Math
In Mr. Woodard’s 7th Grade Math classes, the students have been working hard on the geometry standards. They have learned new vocabulary involving angle relationships that are caused when parallel lines are cut by a transversal. Also, we have examined the studies of Pythagoras by learning about the Pythagorean Theorem and several different real-life applications in which the Theorem can be used. Our focus is going to shift toward reviewing for the first part of the PARCC assessment for the next two weeks, followed by finding area, volume, and surface area of two and three-dimensional objects.
We would also like to welcome Mrs. French into our classroom for the next few months as a student teacher who is finishing up her teaching degree!
