  • Period 6--Athletic P.E.


    Good morning. My suggestion is that the baseball guys check this page every other day. I'll have some suggestions for you but I'm sure you are probably already doing most of what I will suggest. For the Water Polo class I will not have anything for you, please contact your coach.

    We are going to operate this way through at least May 1st. Our season has not been canceled.

    So, for today and tomorrow, Tuesday March 30th and Wednesday April 1st:

    Baseball guys: Get some exercise. Jog and sprint. Do all of the plyometrics that we have done. Play catch. Swing a bat. Do pushups and situps. Visualize having success on the field (****If you don't train your mind than everything else is pretty useless). Be careful about what you eat and limit your soda intake. Boredom can easily lead to overeating.

    Here is your homework:

    Email to me a "Thought For The Day." Due by Thursday. It can be one you make up or one you remember. I can be serious or funny, philosophical or silly. My email is gary2_libby@chino.k12.ca.us Please contact your teammates because I doubt that everybody will be looking on this page.

    If we never practice together again I want you to know that the 2020 Chino Cowboys will always be a fond memory for me.

    Take care of yourselves

    Coach Libby

  • Good morning,

    "Distance Education--March 30-TBD"

    Revised Syllabus--Term: Spring 2020

    Contact info: gary2_libby@chino.k12.ca.us

    Office Hours: M-F 8:00-10:00 AM and probably much more often than that.

    You will need to take much responsibility for your learning during these very unordinary times. Be aware of due dates.

    I'll do my best to answer student emails within 24 hours (probably much sooner than that) and evaluate work within five days.

    The grading will be Pass-Fail, not A, B, C, D, F. A minimal effort, not following directions, non-participation will result in a failing grade.

    In U.S. History we will be covering the Cold War, The Korean War, The Eisenhower Era, the Atomic Age, The New Frontier and The Great Society. We will cover the Civil rights Era and The vietnam War. We will cover the fight for change, the Counterculture, and into the 21st Century.

    World History will cover World War II, The Cold War, the emergence of new nations and regional conflicts. Terrorism and the developing world will be covered and we will finish with the world today, including social and environmental challenges.
