"Go the Distance With 10 Minutes of Fitness." Our Supervisor of Health and Physical Education, Mr. Kevin Alvine, developed "10 Minutes of Fitness" a few years ago to implement and increase students' physical activity during Physical Education. Students work together to be better, not only physically, but also on other characteristics needed in the future, such as communication, determination, and motivation. Here at West Orange HS, we try to encourage the students to try their very best at all times. We try to incorporate different activities daily so that it does not become repetitive and the students are engaged at all times. Our "10 Minutes of Fitness" is set up with different stations every day at the start of every Physical Education class. Another way we try to engage and motivate our students is by playing music during "10 Minutes of Fitness". Students also input their daily/marking period scores on the Daily Fit Log to keep track of their progress.
