Curriculum Matters!

Erie Newsletter


We have had the privilege of working with Erie Public Schools over the last two years in the implementation of their Carol M. White PEP Grant. We have seen their physical education department make incredible strides towards teaching their students what it means to be physically and health literate. In using the FIVE FOR LIFE® Curriculum, as well as, the FAB 5® Curriculum and WELNET® the district has come to know what it means to educate students in Quality Physical Education (#QPE). We’ve included the latest edition of Erie Public Schools newsletter “Curriculum Matters”. Go to pages 4 and 5 to see how their physical education department has been progressing and how their using Focused Fitness resources in their pursuit of #QPE!

FAB 5 From Anaheim

Anaheim City Schools received a PEP Grant in 2012. We have had the esteemed privilege of working with them to make positive, sustainable changes to the health & physical education program. They adopted our FAB 5® Physical Activity Program (PAP). The health and physical education team is lead by Tammie Bernal. Between Tammie and her two health and PE super stars, Michael Lamey and Tracie Turrietta they have made tremendous strides in the K-6 California District. Over the past two years they have seen incredible growth in food group recognition as well as fitness testing.

Michael Lamey is currently working on his Master’s Degree. For one of his projects he made the FAB 5® video featured in this post. With the help of some Anaheim City Students they were able to describe the FAB 5® and what they represent in a very clear and fun way.

A special thanks goes out to Michael for not only making a great video, but letting us share it with all of you! Let us know what you think and be sure to share it will all of your students!
