My name is Kalia Duncan and I am a Physical Education teacher at Calvin Collidge Middle School. I am originally from Wisconsin and graduated from Carthage College with a Bachelors Degree in Exercise and Sports Science and Secondary Education. This is my third year at Calvin Coolidge and I am very excited to be back. Mr. Rayner and myself are looking forward to planning some new units this year (Matball, Jump Rope, Speedball, etc.), as well as revisiting some of the students favorite sports and activities (Basketball, Volleyball, Football, etc.). If you ever have any questions or concerns about your student, please feel free to email me anytime at my district email: kalia.duncan@psd150.org

    E-Learning Activities for Physical Education

    Calvin Coolidge Middle School

    Kalia Duncan

    The PE requirement for these E-Learning days is to choose activities from each list and perform them at home.  Each list will direct how many activities are required.  Once they are completed document what you have done on a piece of paper.  Write your name and date on the paper and have your parent or guardian sign it and return to PE the next day that school is in session.  If we have multiple E-Learning days in a row, each day you will complete activities for PE but they have to be different each day.  Enjoy your day.  Here are the activity categories and directions:
