Ohio’s New Physical Education Standards
Adopted July 2015
***Content taken from the Ohio Department of Education Website
New Physical Education Standards were adopted by the Ohio Department of Education and will go into effect for the 2016-2017 school year. Ontario’s physical education teachers will be implementing these standards next school year.
THE GOAL: The goal of physical education is to develop physically literate individuals who have the knowledge, skills and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity.
To pursue a lifetime of healthful physical activity, a physically literate individual:
• Has learned the skills necessary to participate in a variety of physical activities;
• Knows the implications and the benefits of involvement in various types of physical activities;
• Participates regularly in physical activity;
• Is physically fit;
• Values physical activity and its contributions to a healthful lifestyle.
A physically literate individual…
Demonstrates competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns.
Applies knowledge of concepts, principles, strategies and tactics related to movement and performance.
Demonstrates the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness.
Exhibits responsible, personal and social behavior that respects self and others.
Recognizes the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and/or social interaction.
The pictures above were taken during the Stingel Elementary Field Day. Mr. Tyler Gates, physical education teacher at Stingel, organized two days of fun events that incorporated all of the standards listed above.
R.A. Horn Outstanding Achievement Honoree
On Wednesday, June 15, 2016, Isaiah Morales received the R.A. Horn Outstanding Achievement Award in a ceremony held at the Vila Milano Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio. Isaiah will be a freshman at Ontario High School this fall. He was nominated as the outstanding student in the SST 7 region. There were 16 regions represented at the ceremony. Isaiah is one of sixteen students in the entire state of Ohio recognized for his leadership efforts.

Isaiah is a leader both at school and in the community. This past school year, he collected a huge donation of can goods from Walmart to give to the needy. Isaiah does snow removal and grass cutting throughout his neighborhood. He made his own business cards and has proven to self-initiate a variety of business ventures.
Like so many children from single working parents, Isaiah was seeking a safe place to go after school. Isaiah started going to the YMCA in Mansfield when he was 10 years old . He would go in around 3 pm and stayed sometimes until close. Isaiah felt isolated, started making friends with a few boys who were negative role models and soon found himself banned from the Y. Shortly thereafter, Isaiah and his mom went to the Y to discuss reestablishing his membership. It was decided that he could return under two conditions, he would have to abide by all of the rules and he would have to volunteer a minimum of eight hours a month. Isaiah agreed to the terms and his transformation began.

Isaiah began volunteering 8 hours per month at the Y last year. He started his volunteering by folding towels and welcoming members, which quickly grew into setting up youth program activities and ended with him being a point person for the youth sports leagues. Around his 15th birthday, Isaiah decided that he wanted to continue his passion at the Y and work as a Lifeguard saying "I wanted to be a role model for other individuals like me". Isaiah went on to pass his Lifeguard Certification and is life guarding for the YMCA of Mansfield today! Isaiah exhibits the traits of a true leader, namely, caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Isaiah's mother Michelle, his grandmother, his older brother, his immediate supervisor at the YMCA and Superintendent Lisa Carmichael attended the R.A. Horn Outstanding Achievement Award ceremony to see Isaiah receive recognition. Superintendent Carmichael states "I cannot express how proud I am of Isaiah for all of his accomplishments. I have watched him grow from a shy young boy into a remarkable young man full of promise. There is no doubt in my mind that Isaiah will continue to accomplish anything that he sets his mind to. He is genuinely a nice kid. The first time that I hired Isaiah to do yard work at my home, I was so impressed that he took the time to check back with me to make sure that I was satisfied with the work that he did. He is honest and humble, and he's someone who I've grown to really care about."
