My name is Jana Perkins and I have been in Education for over 20 years.  For the last 8 years, I have taught Elementary PE in Farwell.  This year, I will also be an assistant coach for Tennis and Track.

I am married to Shane, who teaches Senior English. As AD, he coaches Football, Varsity Basketball and Track.

We have 3 children.  Jace, who will be attending Sul Ross University in the fall.  He plans to continue his Basketball career.   Slade, will be in 9th grade.  He is looking forward to the next four years of High School.  And Aidan, who will be in 3rd grade and is as smart as a whip.

What's Happening in PE

Throughout the school year we will be doing many activities and games to promote physical and social awareness, build integrity, establish positive social/behavioral skills, encourage individual growth and team work, use problem solving strategies and incorporate an attitude of "willingness to always try."

Our P.E. activities during the year will usually consist of warm-up exercises, learning the basic fundamentals used in traditional sports, learn new games/concepts, be involved in some type of movement for at least 70% of class time, do at least one community money raising project, collect Box Tops and Tyson Chicken Project A+ labels.  The 4th and 5th grades will  have a Tri-Meet against Bovina and Texico and we will have A FUN Field Day event at the end of the year.  

I will also have open gym during the year, by grade level.  Your child can come after school and learn skills, and then play the game of basketball against their peers.   We have a blast!!!  So look for dates in an up coming news letters. 

PE Requirements
The P. E. Department does have certain requirements.  The State requires that students 3rd - 5th grade take part in the "Fitness Gram Assessment."  A student's fitness in in six components is evaluated to see where his/her fitness level falls.  Grades ARE NOT taken on the results; just an evaluation.  1st - 5th grade are given grades in P.E.  These grades are based mainly on class responsibilities (behavior, participation & campus/district policies) and dress code.  His/her physical ability is not the emphasis for grading; if the student is doing their best, then that's all I ask.  

The student does have a basic dress code to follow.  TENNIS shoes are necessary; this will provide better performance and safety (points will be deducted off their grade for each day they do not wear tennis shoes).  The shoes need to fit and stay on the foot securely.  NO sandals, flip flops/crocs, boots of any kind and/or roller shoes.  Wearing the proper clothing during P.E. will provide safety, performance and modesty (shorts under skirts/dresses, etc.).

Students are not allowed to chew gum in P.E. (10 points off their grade).  This is imperative in an active P.E. class.  

If a student should not participate in P.E. due to an illness or injury, please send a note or contact me through email, text or phone.  If it is a prolonged illness, a doctor's note is required.
