JES Elementary PE Technology 

Interactive Health Technologies (IHT) Spirit System: 

The Spirit System is a web-based assessment system that uses heart rate monitors that your child will wear in PE class. The heart rate monitors are designed specifically for physical education to help the students gain instant feedback on their effort. They will also engage and educate students on a variety of fitness activities that optimize cardiovascular endurance, stamina, flexibility, speed, core strength, power, coordination, and self-confidence. In addition, you and your child will receive feedback as soon as class ends, through emailed reports.

In addition, the Spirit Curriculum - Student Resources will encourage students to keep a journal and to complete worksheets throughout the semester that include fitness, nutrition, and self-awareness lesson work. These resources will also help our staff better engage you and your family in order to best support your child in all aspects of their life.

The IHT Spirit System is designed to lend a hand to both teacher and student. Our department goals are to help your child better understand their own health and take ownership of their overall well-being for life. We also want to integrate tools like the Spirit System to assist our efforts in measuring the effectiveness and success of our physical education program.
