Fond du Lac School District’s PEP Grant Provides New Heart Rate Monitoring Tool

Students in sixth through twelfth grade in Fond du Lac School District’s physical education (PE) classes learned this year that POLAR A360s aren’t a new kind of snowmobile, but a useful tool that helped them assess their exercise regimen. These devices, some of the latest tools in heart rate technology, help individuals gain specific real-time feedback regarding their exertion levels. The POLAR 360s, purchased with the 2016 Carol M. White PEP Grant funds for Fond du Lac’s Mindfully Active Community (MAC), allowed students to actually see if the effort that they were putting into their workouts were moving them towards a healthier exercise routine and, subsequently, a healthier lifestyle.

Brian Holzman, Theisen Middle School’s PE teacher, feels that the heart rate monitors promoted cardiorespiratory fitness by letting students exercise in their own target heart rate range. “I think one of the most useful features that the heart rate monitors have to offer is giving us concrete evidence of a student’s participation level and their overall effort. Sometimes it may appear that a student is not putting forth as much effort as the other students in the class, but their heart rate will tell us just the opposite.”

 

Sabish students increase their fitness in the new fitness center and with heart rate technology.

Woodworth Rocket Club Visits SSM Health

Woodworth eighth grade Rocket Club members are joining forces with Dr. Clements and the staff from the SSM Health’s (formerly Agnesian HealthCare) cardiac cath lab at St. Agnes Hospital. The cardiac cath lab staff demonstrated how pressure in the heart is measured in the lab. The students will be simulating this type of pressure in their rocket at launch time.  They are looking to measure the pressure from the rocket launch (G-force) on the heart, much like what astronauts and fighter pilots experience during flight. Pictured here (L-R) are: Matthew Sesing, Ben Schmitt, Dakota Nelson, Peter Szromba, Tyler Vang, Shawn Ferguson, Dr. Clements, Sarah Ludwig, Woodworth science instructor, Meghan Schmitt, Jen Schmitz, and Kerry Bruins

Stationary bikes, ellipticals, human-powered treadmills, TRX suspension training, balance and flexibility equipment, and a wide assortment of strength and functional exercising options - sounds like a fitness center, right?  Actually it’s fitness equipment that students at Sabish, Theisen, and Woodworth Middle Schools now have access to right in their schools, thanks to the Carol M.

My Stop App Helps Parents Track Buses

Fond du Lac School District parents can now use the free My Stop app to determine the location of their child's school bus. The My Stop app displays the school bus's location on a map, as well as provides the estimated time of arrival to a specific student's bus stop. The location of the bus is automatically updated every few seconds to accommodate any delays.

Approximately 1300 students ride the bus each day to and from Fond du Lac public and parochial schools, according to Marian Sheridan, Fond du Lac School District’s Coordinator of School Health and Safety Programs and Attendance and Transportation. GPS technology was installed in every school bus last summer.  This year, new computer software was added that links the GPS data with the school bus route database. 
 
"We know that parents want to have access to transportation information so they don't have to call to find out if buses are running late," Sheridan said. "The  primary intent of the app is for parents to have this transportation information at their fingertips."
