Bio: Mr. McAninch earned a B.S. of Education in Health/Physical Education and Safety Education from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania.
Physical Education is a means to continue fighting the epidemic of obesity that is gripping our nation. Current statistics indicate that nearly 67% of the U.S. population is now at risk of becoming obese or has already become obese based on the CDC's BMI scale.
* Students will be given the opportunity to participate in Physical Education throughout the school year. Third and fourth grade
students will continue working on the loco-motor skills introduced to them in the primary grades with a greater emphasis on body
awareness, as well as, building teamwork concepts. There will be many skills that help with basic hand/eye coordination so vital in
many routine activities we complete each and every day.
* Fifth and sixth grade students will have a greater focus on individual and team sports, as well as, team building/cooperative games
that help students develop skills used to work in groups and accomplish a designated goal.
* As always, participation is a factor in grading. Students will be expected to give effort during class. The class is not designed to
create "athletes", but is designed to incorporate movement designed to make a student become more active.
All classroom courses will follow the grading scale that has been adopted by the Troy Area School District.
