Message from the President As President, I join President-elect, Laurie Cancalosi; Carol Lynch, Immediate Past President; and Executive Director, Jackie Malaska and our Executive Board in welcoming you to our 98 th NJAHPERD convention. Our membership has remained one of the strongest of all state associations in the nation and that strength is a result of member support. Throughout the past year NJAHPERD has provided 10 professional workshops/ conferences and one for our Future Professionals. Advocacy in New Jersey is alive and well and is ‘Still on the Move.’ I am asking members to offer to serve as officers in our association and identify those who might serve NJAHPERD. Find ways to advance our professions in your communities. Be a testament to the commitment we have to quality physical education, health and dance programs in our schools. Thank you to our NJAHPERD Office staff, Kimberly Boerner and Michele Delano for their work on this event.

Christine Baccarella NJAHPERD President

Welcome from the Executive Director Greetings! On behalf of the NJAHPERD Executive Board, welcome to the 2017 Annual Convention at the Jersey Shore. We extend a special thank you to our guests, speakers, exhibitors, and especially to you, our members. Your attendance validates your personal commitment and makes a powerful statement that our profession is critical in promoting a healthy and active lifestyle for everyone in New Jersey! NJAHPERD is committed to providing programs, products and services to reverse the obesity epidemic, but our shared vision for quality health and physical education programs is dependent upon our combined efforts. As Convention Manager, I want to thank the NJAHPERD Executive Board for their commitment and help in planning an excellent program. Many hours are necessary to plan an event of this size and scope. Without the assistance of the countless volunteers, especially our retired members and the smiling faces of the future professionals, your experience would not be as enjoyable. Special thanks to the more than 200 speakers who have developed high quality PD sessions for you and their willingness to share their expertise. The excitement and energy that surrounds us during convention time is truly who we are as professionals. Be proud and recognize that you play a vital role in the educational process of the whole child. Take the time to network with fellow professionals and share your experiences. Examine the latest products and services from our vendors, and applaud NJAHPERD award recipients. Most importantly, reflect on your personal wellness. Take a moment and breathe in the salt air and be mindful of the beautiful ocean view. Enjoy yourself and return to your students refreshed and rejuvenated, with a sense of accomplishment, pride, and a renewed excitement for the best profession ever!

Ron Malm Focused Fitness

Convention Announcements

Jackie Malaska Convention Manager

Ron Malm is a co-owner of Focused Fitness and loves working with educators to promote Quality Physical Education (#QPE). Prior to creating Focused Fitness, Ron was an elementary and middle school physical educator, adjunct instructor at a local university, baseball, basketball and track coach and a personal trainer. He holds a Master's degree and was a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA. Ron's professional objective is to give students the movement skills necessary and the knowledge required to understand and apply fitness, health and nutrition concepts to stay fit, healthy and active throughout their lives. Ron has been instrumental in revolutionizing Physical Education by co-developing the first-ever web -based software to collect, report, and validate student growth and program effectiveness. He was also a co-creator of over 30 curriculum resources that are currently used throughout the country to provide #QPE to today's students. Since 2001, Ron has trained thousands of teachers during professional development workshops and conferences in 40+ states. He considers meeting and working with educators to be the best part of his job - and he gets to enjoy it quite often, as the Focused Fitness software and curriculum resources are now used in over 500 districts. Ron's goal is to bring #QPE to every school. His drive is fueled by his belief that simply keeping kids “sweating, smiling and safe” is not Quality Physical Education. With the mounting pressure to raise academic scores and expand time provided to other subject areas, Physical Education faces a real threat of being eliminated. However, Ron believes that by educating students, parents, teachers, and administrators of #QPE, we can collaboratively prove the needs of Physical Education and receive the resources needed to implement quality programming.

Dr. Nettie L. Smith Dr. Nettie L. Smith, for whom this keynote address has been named, was a strong advocate for health, physical education and dance for many years. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Ohio State University and her Master’s and Doctorate from New York University. Dr. Smith taught at the elementary, high school, and college levels in Ohio, Alaska, and New Jersey. She started the Health and Physical education major program at what now is known as Kean University, where she was also chairperson of the department for many years. She served NJAHPERD as president and parliamentarian, along with many other positions. She was on the Executive Board of the EDA of AAHPERD, and was a member of NCATE, the assessment group for colleges and universities. Dr. Smith was also a member of Delta Kappa Gamma, a nationally known collegiate group. Dr. Smith spoke at the AAHPERD national convention and authored articles for numerous professional journals. She was a mentor and colleague to many. It is NJAHPERD’s pleasure to name this lecture in honor of Dr. Nettie L. Smith.

NJAHPERD wishes to thank Kean University for sponsoring the Opening Session. 15

Pathway to Addiction: The Opiate Stories Promenade 3-4 Janine Fabrizio, CPS, LCSW New Jersey Prevention Network Over the years, prescription narcotic misuse has led to a serious public health concern including addiction. This workshop is designed to discuss and inform the audience about prescription narcotic misuse and its impact on heroin abuse and addiction. The consequences of this abuse have been devastating and are continuing to rise. Targeted populations will be addressed and information on prevention, intervention and solution strategies will also be presented. School Gardens (LMAS tract) Promenade 5-6 Beth Feehan, Farm to School Program Coordinator, New Jersey Department of Agriculture, Division of Food and Nutrition School gardens are increasingly proving to be a wonderful connection between what is being served in the cafeteria and what is being taught in the classroom. Students who plant seeds, water and harvest fresh fruits and vegetables not only gain lessons in biology, math, and nutrition but also are able to see the connection to how food is grown and prepared. These life skills go far beyond the classroom and are taken into adulthood experiences to create lifelong healthy choices and lifestyles. All

Physical Educators may have a tough time relating to the “reluctant exerciser” and may need to adapt their teaching to meet their needs. This activity session includes a variety of instructional and inclusionary strategies to engage your unmotivated students while keeping your highly skilled students challenged!
