Miss Shaina McBride, Physical Education
I am originally from Ogallala, Nebraska where I participated in various sports including volleyball, basketball, track, and tennis. I am a graduate of Nebraska Wesleyan University with a B.S. in Health and Physical Education K-12. After substitute teaching at area schools for a year, I became the PE teacher at St Cecilia in 2012. I have also been the Athletic Director since 2013.
I enjoy most types of physical activity with some of my favorites being running, swimming, hiking, and paddle boarding. I believe everyone can find a physical activity they enjoy, so my goal is to introduce new and exciting types of physical activity to my students.
Welcome to Ms. McBride's Physical Education page! On this page you can find course objectives, the National Standards for PE, class expectations, and more. Thanks for visiting!
Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
In P.E., students will be introduced to the fundamentals of a variety of physical activities and team and individual sports which include skills, rules, and physical fitness components. Emphasis will be placed on individual growth and enrichment.
The PE curriculum and focus will be twofold

2. There will be an emphasis on lifetime activities and wellness concepts that students can carry on and continue outside of school and in life.

Grades will be based on participation, attitude, and attendance along with the following grade specific components:
K-5 will occasionally have worksheets or other assessments.
4-8 will complete the Fitnessgram fitness testing in the fall and in the spring.
6-8 will have periodic in class and take home assignments. They will also have quizzes on health topics and fitness units.
If middle school students are absent from P.E. class, they need to get a make-up sheet from me to complete and return to receive their daily grade.
The make-up sheet consists of the following:
Complete 30 minutes of physical activity and answer the following questions. Have the paper signed by an adult who knows you did the activity (parent/guardian/coach/etc).
1. What activity did you choose to do?
2. Was the activity challenging for you? Why or why not?
3. How does this activity benefit your physical wellness?
