Mr. Penta's Health and Physical Education Webpage
Thank you for visiting my webpage. I am very excited about starting my ninth year in the Long Branch School District.
I have been at the Gregory School since September of 2015.
I have also been a Long Branch Public Schools summer camp teacher since 2011, as well as a football coach at Long Branch High School since 2011.
At Gregory School, we will be developing movement skills and eye-hand coordination, as well as learning about health and fitness.
Please make sure your child wears sneakers on days when they have PE. They are allowed to bring their own water bottles on days when they have physical education. Due to safety reasons, students cannot participate if they are wearing Crocs, boots, Uggs, or sandals/flip flops.
Mondays and Fridays - Gilbert, Ramsey, Thompson, Odom, and McLaughlin
Tuesdays - Dixon, Rindner, Robertson, Lawrence, and McCreesh
Wednesdays and Thursdays - Santos, Noone, Dombrowiecki, Hagerman, Frazao, Roberts, and Collins
Students will be receiving a thirty minute health lesson once per week, beginning in October. The unit topics are as follows: personal safety/digital safety; emotional health; community health services; health conditions, disease, and medicine; responsibility and decision making; nutrition; growth and development; wellness and health; hygiene; and family life.
