8th Grade Physical Education and Health

PE/Health Resources

  • Ms. Amanda Strom

    Welcome to my website!  The 2019-2020 school year will be my 7th 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. 

    Mr. Simonis and I co-teach 8th grade physical education on a daily basis. We are passionate about P.E. and strive to teach our students to be lifelong learners and movers! A physically educated person has learned skills necessary to perform a variety of activities and participates in regular physical activity. They value physical activity and it’s contribution to a healthy lifestyle, and they know the benefits from involvement in physical activities.  We want P.E. 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.
