    Dear Parents 

    Due to the Coronavirus school closure, I will be offering my class online starting April 6. Students will be able to access the class from this webpage and from Microsoft Teams (more info forthcoming). I will update this page every Monday morning for that week. 

    Even though it sounds strange to take a physical education class online, the reality is that physical education and health are more important now than ever during quarantine. Getting our bodies moving each day will help improve our physical, mental, and emotional health.

    For our class, you should estimate about 30 minutes of learning every day.  Some of the activities are lessons to complete.  (Lessons can be completed and submitted through Microsoft Teams or by e-mailing me). Others are suggestions for daily practice in exercise. There is a Daily Learning Log for students to proudly keep track of their work every day.   If you have questions, please e-mail me and I will respond within 24 hours.  If you do not yet have internet access, please let me know and I will make alternative arrangements for you. 

    Dear Students - 

    Our online class will start April 6. Check back here on April 6 for instructions and assignments. In the meantime, make sure you are working on your learning packet, and if you have your login information for your SLPS e-mail, check that account daily. 

    Don't forget that you can get free food Monday through Friday at any of the sites listed here from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

    2019-2020 Class Description:
     This class is designed for the middle school student. Students will assess their current level of fitness using various physical fitness tests. Included will be curl-ups, push-ups, and pacer test. Various health concepts will be discussed to give students a foundation to use in leading a healthy lifestyle. Concepts of physical fitness, cyberbullying and the body systems will be focused on during the 2019-2020 school year. All content meets the National and State standards for sixth through eighth grade students. You can access Ms. Diehl's web page by going to www.slps.org then goes to the school website and find the teacher. I really enjoy watching students accomplish many tasks and skills that they start off saying "I can't do that." I also feel proud when I see our students not only achieve academically, but also athletically. 
    Ms. Diehl was born in Ohio and raised in Arkansas. Ms. Diehl is in her 20 year teaching, 13 years for Saint Louis Public Schools. She has coached  girl's basketball, at the middle school level and girl's basketball, volleyball and softball on the high school level. 
    Ms. Diehl earned her Bachelor's Degree in K-12 Physical Education from Williams Baptist University in Walnut Ridge Arkansas.  She is certified to teach K-12 Health and K-12 Physical Education. During the 2016-2017 school year Ms. Diehl was a finalist for Teacher of the Year.
    I enjoy running, swimming and spending time with my family.
