- The Annual Physical Education Workshop: The Department hosts an annual Physical Education
Workshop featuring a nationally accomplished Physical Education Teacher as its facilitator
every second week of October. The participants are drawn from Physical Education Teachers
and Coaches in Upper East Texas; and PE Teacher Trainees from local Colleges and Universities.
The workshop features a stimulating assortment of fun-packed, educational games and
ideas not only focusing on participation and involvement for the large class, but
that intrigue, engage, and motivate students. The presentations provide all inclusive,
fun activities, which in turn minimize discipline problems and maximize participation.
All activities are hands-on and every participant is actively engaged. At the end
of the workshop, certificates are awarded to the successful participants. For more
