Ruth Hooker School

Welcome to Mr. Derlago's Physical Education Class!

I am so excited to be a part of Ruth Hooker School! As a former Selkirk Steeler hockey player, I am thrilled to be back in Selkirk! 

I have always had a passion for sports and have been involved in hockey for over 20 years as both a player and a coach. 

I love the outdoors, and everything nature has to offer!  Hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, snowboarding, and cross-country skiing are some of my favourite pastimes.  

I am looking forward to meeting all the students at Ruth Hooker School and getting to know what activities they love to do!

 

Healthy bodies = Healthy minds! 

Let's keep moving and having fun!!!!

Updates:

  • I will be posting updates on this home page regarding intramural and inter-school activities. Consent forms to participate in inter-school activities will need to be filled out and signed to allow students to participate in these events.

  • Students in GRADES 5 AND 6 will be required to change in the changerooms for Phys Ed before and after activity. A second set of comfortable clothing (gym clothes) is required.

  • Students are expected to wear comfortable clothing and running shoes.

 

  • Water bottles are allowed and required each day.

  • Students' hands will be SANITIZED upon entering Physical Education classes.

 

Selkirk Steelers Partnership Initiative

  • I am pleased to announce that we are continuing our partnership with the Selkirk Steelers this school year!

As Per Ruth Hooker School's Handbook:

PHYSICAL EDUCATION/HEALTH

  • The Phys. Ed/Health program stresses the importance of fitness and healthy living. All students are expected to participate to the best of their ability, change into gym clothes, and have proper indoor footwear.
     

  • Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of noon-hour sports and activities (intramural program) and team sports with possible before and after school practices (inter-school sports) - Participation in either of these programs requires students to attend enough practices, meet all classroom commitments, and follow school and gym behaviour codes (sportsmanship, fair play, positive attitude).

  • Grade 4 and 5 students are taught swimming skills by qualified instructors at the LSSD pool at The Comp. This instruction is part of the required Phys. ed. curriculum, and all students are expected to participate. 

Golden Eagles of the Month:

  • One or more students will be chosen from each grade as Golden Eagles of the Month. Selected students will receive a certificate, have their name posted on this website, and have their picture taken and displayed on the Physical Education bulletin board.

  • Golden Eagles participate in EVERY gym class and make the gym an enjoyable place for their fellow classmates! Participating in all gym classes is important because not all sports appeal to every student. It is important for all students to try their best regardless of the activity. Golden Eagles also demonstrate cooperation, camaraderie, and respect for other students around them. It is the overall effort and attitude that counts more than how good a student is at a sport or activity.

Golden Shoe:

  • This award is given to one class every month. The deserving class will be posted on this website and have the honour of proudly displaying the Golden Shoe Trophy in their classroom for a month. Classes win this award by showing a positive attitude during all gym activities. They do not need to be the most athletic because their overall effort is most important.

 

 

December Awards:

 

Golden Shoe Award:  

December’s Golden Shoe is awarded to Mrs. Kowalchuk’s Grade 1 class! This class consistently demonstrated a positive attitude, work ethic, and sportsmanship throughout the month of December! Congratulations to Mrs. Kowalchuk’s class!

 

Golden Eagles of the Month:
