8th Grade Health & Physical Education
Ms. Amanda Strom
Welcome 8th Graders!! Please click the "Remote Learning 2.0" link for Google Classroom and Office Hours information! We will be starting remote learning with Health Education. When we return to our physical space in the gym, we will have PE for the remainder of the year!
About Ms Strom: The 2020-2021 school year will be my 8th year of teaching Physical Education and Health at Antioch Upper Grade School. I am the AUGS 8th Grade Girls' Volleyball Coach, and in the past I have also coached softball and basketball. In addition to my responsibilities at AUGS, I am also the Freshmen Girls' Volleyball Coach at Antioch Community High School. I have my master's degree in health & wellness education, and I am a member of the District 34 Wellness Committee. I am passionate about PE & Health, and strive to teach my students to be lifelong learners and movers! A physically educated student has learned skills necessary to perform a variety of activities and participates in regular physical activity. They value physical activity and its contribution to a healthy lifestyle, and they know the benefits from involvement in physical activities. Most importantly though, I always want PE & Health to be a positive and educational experience for everyone!
If you have any specific questions or concerns, or information on how I can help you learn, please let me know.
