Middle School Physical Education

The middle school physical education program is built around the application of skills learned in the elementary years. Students are exposed to a variety of individual and team sports, cooperative, and outdoor/adventure activities, as well as fitness activities. Emphasis is placed on refining game skills/play, problem-solving strategies through the application of game concepts, increasing knowledge of personal fitness, and developing appropriate social skills. All students are afforded opportunities to become physically literate individuals who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity. eLearning offers physical education for grades 6, 7, and 8 beginning in Marking Period 2.
