(#1) PE Institute Intern: I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Mark Strazzer and I am a middle school PE/health teacher at Owen Middle School in Buncombe County, NC. I am also a graduate student at East Carolina University working on my Masters in Health Education and Promotion. I will be serving as an intern for the 2013 National PE Institute and be one of the primary communications contact for the conference. As always, you can also contact the Great Activities Publishing Company Office at (800) 927-0682.

(#3) “Common Core State Standards” Resource CD: This year, the National PE Institute is looking to provide all 2013 attendees a resource CD on how to integrate the Common Core Standards into health and PE classes. If you or your school district has been working on integrating the Common Core and have any resources (sample lessons, support documents, etc.) you would like to share with your fellow educators, the National PE Institute wants to hear from you!

Please forward them to Mark Strazzer, Mark.strazzer@gmail.com or Mark.strazzer@bcsemail.org, so we can compile them for this year’s conference attendees.

You will be credited for your contribution in the resource CD and will help “solve” this common concern that most K-12 PE teachers have at this time. If possible, please have all submissions turned in by May 1st, 2013.

(#4) 2013 Registration Form: Finally, please go to our website – wwww.nationalpeinstitute.com – to download this year’s registration form. We look forward to seeing you at the 2013 National PE Institute. Please feel free to contact me or the Great Activities Office at (800) 927-0682 with any concerns or questions.
