             Welcome to Mr. Franklin's Physical Education and Health webpage. Here at Busch we're thrilled to be back to school and ready to take on virtual learning. Saint Louis Public Schools has provided us with an excellent teaching tool in Microsoft Teams. I look forward to engaging with students through the Teams platform. There are a plethora of activities and engaging assignments we will be embarking on throughout our virtual learning experience. 
    If you have any questions, feel free to email me @ jacob.franklin@slps.org
    Thank you and let's have a great year!
    Student Letter:
            Welcome to Busch Middle School of Character. We're so excited and honored to have you as a student at our school. I hope you're excited to start your middle school career. Even though we're going to school virtually, we will stay have many opportunities to engage with other students and feel like a school. 
            Our virtual P.E. class will be different than class would be if we were at school in a number of ways. While we're having classes virtually we will working on physical education fifty percent of the time and health fifty percent of the time. When we are in-person, most of the class will be dedicated to movement and team building activities. 
            Students will need to dedicated some space at their home to do a little movement. While we won't be running around our houses, we will need roughly six feet by six feet of space for exercises. Along with exercises, we will also be participating in different games and challenges you can do at your house. 
            In health, we will be covering a wide range of topics designed specifically for middle school aged students. I also plan on teaching some cooking skills and recipes once in awhile. I'm looking forward to the challenge of providing you with interesting and engaging lessons each day.
