WELCOME TO OAKS ROAD P.E.!
My name is Guy Pepper. I graduated with a BS in Exercise and Sport Science from East Carolina University in December of 1999. Ever since then I have been the Physical Education teacher here at Oaks Road. I have a wife, two kids (twins) that are in the 11th grade, and a beagle named Izzie.
It is my hope that we can work as a team to provide a great learning environment that your children will enjoy.
Benefits of Oaks Road Physical Education:
The students learn in a different setting. They are away from desks, chairs, books, etc. I am a huge supporter of integrating classroom learning into PE.
It develops good sportsmanship and cooperation skills.
It provides knowledge of the importance of life long exercise that will improve their quality of life well after they are out of school.
It develops motor skills as well as mental alertness, improves concentration and attention span, and can improve classroom behavior.
It develops self-esteem in children that don't excel academically. This confidence carries over to the classroom.
Box Tops for Education: I collect Box Tops to help purchase equipment for Physical Education. K-5 students can bring them to their PE class each week.
Clothing: All students should wear athletic shoes on their scheduled PE days. Shoes that are not made for physical activity can cause injury to your child. Loose jewelry should not be worn to PE. It could be broken or cause injury. Girls that are wearing dresses and skirts in PE should have shorts underneath. Many activities require movements that would limit their participation.
Health: Please let the school nurse know if your child has a history of asthma or other concerns that I will need to be aware of. I always urge my students to do their best but do not want them to over do it!
