Welcome to Physical Education Avon Novas Welcome back to Physical Education, it has been a pleasure to have all the students back in the gym. We also enjoy getting to know our new students. We look forward to planning engaging activities throughout the year that will help all students develop socially, academically and physically. I would like to introduce myself to the kindergarten families and all the new families. My name is Mrs. Steinkamp and I have been teaching Physical Education in D46 for 18 years. I am married to my husband Matt and we have two children Trey (11) and Bailey (14). My name is Mr. Lewandowski. This is my first permanent position as a Physical Education teacher. I’m excited to take the next step in my teaching career here at Avon! I graduated from Western Illinois University in December of 2012 and substitute taught for three years prior to this. I enjoy playing soccer and golf in my free time! All students will participate in PE for 40 minutes three times a week. Students must wear proper tennis shoes to participate in PE so they are safe while participating in a variety of activities. We will being going outside when the weather permits. Late summer and fall is a great time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. We do plan special events each trimester, in the fall we will organize an autumn obstacle course. The PTF and PE staff organize a Wellness NIght and Pasta Dinner in the late winter and finally in the spring students will participate in field day. More details to come for each event! Third and fourth grade students will participate in four components of fitness testing each trimester. The fitness components include; flexibility, muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance, and agility. The goal of fitness testing is to provide data so we can plan a variety of activities that help students improve in the different components of fitness. It also allows students to monitor their own personal growth. We are looking forward to a great school year!! If you have any question please contact us via email or phone. Sincerely, Mrs Steinkamp 847-223-3530 ext. 5598 Mr. Lewandowski 847-223-3530 ext. 5989
