Middle School Physical Education Curriculum
We want our students to understand the importance of physical activity in maintaining a healthy, physically active way of living. We provide our students a wide range of developmentally appropriate activities that promote physical, social and emotional growth. We strive to have all students active, engaged and feeling successful while emphasizing kindness, cooperation and respect for one another.
STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO INDEPENDENTLY USE THEIR LEARNING TO:
Maintain physical wellness aligned with personal interests, goals, health and circumstances in order to live a happy and productive life.
Demonstrate resilience in the face of challenge, adversity, disappointment and failure in order to facilitate personal growth.
Problem solve, cooperate and leverage strengths of a team while working with diverse groups.
In Physical Education, students will explore a wide variety of activities that will create a foundation for physical literacy and activity throughout their lives. Students will explore, develop and maintain components of physical activity and health while learning to coordinate and cooperate with peers in familiar and novel settings.
