Coach Rob Durant - RRES



Welcome to Coach Durant's Physical Education Program!

Hello! I am your child's physical education teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. My main goal is for each of my students to learn to make healthy choices and feel successful when participating in my classroom. I believe that this will enable students to develop a positive attitude towards physical activity and will encourage them to continue to partake in healthy habits throughout their lifetime.
Students will be encouraged to have fun while participating to the best of their ability in each of the activities we partake in throughout the year. At the elementary level, skills are taught so that students will be able to pursue competitive sports as well as lifetime physical activity skills. With that being said, please ensure that your child wears the appropriate clothing and shoes on the day they have PE. Please click on the PE Calendar link to see when your child has PE class which will be updated as soon as possible. Great Wednesdays are specific PE class where you will find your child's teacher in the PE Calendar days. Please know that your child's safety in my class is extremely important. If your child has any physical disabilities or problems such as asthma, allergies, etc. please let the school know as it needs to be documented in case of an emergency.

We will be having a Popcorn Fundraiser in which all profits go towards our RRES PE Program being the best it can become. Last year we were able to raise enough money to begin a Gymnastics unit in our PE Program so please participate this year so our PE Program can become better every year! We will be participating in Hoops for Hearts this year where your donations are greatly appreciated in helping individuals within communities with heart issues. Field Day is a major event in May where we celebrate our wonderful year at RRES and I would like to welcome volunteers to reach out and have fun with us that day. Volunteers do go through Rio Rancho District Ofiice for a background check and fee to be cleared as a district volunteer, but don't let that be the reason you miss out on this fun and joyful event.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's life long learning. Together we are going to accomplish great things!

Thank you all for participating in our PE events this year they were a huge success! Have a wonderful summer.
