Har-Bur Wellness

My name is Mr. Callahan and I’m currently teaching Wellness at Har-Bur Middle School. This is my tenth year at Region 10 and it has been a delight each and every year. Every student brings a unique energy to the classroom which ensures a new experience every day!!

On a professional level, I have my 092 program in Educational Leadership from Sacred Heart University. In addition, my wife and I (married five years in July) have two beautiful little girls ages three (Ava) and almost two (Bria).

The attachment below, "Middle School Overview Sheet", provides accurate information regarding our grading policy. Please be ready for class with appropriate clothing for activity. If you are looking at your grade online and a zero (0) appears then please see me. If there is a blank in the space, I either do not have your work, you were absent, or the work is pending a grade.

If you have any questions, please email (callahans@region10ct.org) or call (x17544) and I will return your message within two business days. Remember, when times get tough, think of your goal and those who are supporting you and that will be your motivation for success!

11/6/2015 Update....

Students in Mr. Callahan’s classes will engage in a fitness unit from the start of September to the beginning of November. The unit focuses on fitness components (muscular strength and endurance for the upper body, lower body, and core, flexibility as well as cardio respiratory endurance) in addition to making connection to these components to an outside of school activity. The unit is designed to provide students with multiple opportunities for appropriate social interactions while performing fitness exercises. Towards the end of this unit, students will use what they have learned and practiced to participate in the CT Physical Fitness Assessments. The assessments include performance of the PACER (progressive aerobic capacity endurance run), sit and reach stretch, curl-ups, and push-ups. With continued instruction and practice, students learn how to give helpful and corrective feedback to peers. Students will be striving to maintain or improve their overall physical fitness.


Our mission is to expose students to a multitude of successful and meaningful movement experiences while fostering an environment that is positive and safe both physically and emotionally. It is our goal to empower students with the skills and concepts necessary to participate in responsible decision-making and demonstrate behaviors to improve and enhance the quality of their lives. We are responsible to develop the whole learner, including critical thinking, literacy, physical, emotional, and social skills. A strong focus is placed on healthy lifestyles and respect for lifelong physical activity. In providing these opportunities, each student will be prepared to lead and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
