Course Description: Physical Education in the Middle school offers students a variety of games as well as team and individual activities. Increased PE time will provide students an opportunity to improve their overall fitness and will focus on activities that promote exercise for life.

Students will participate in more complex activities such as Frisbee games, volleyball, soccer, basketball, floor hockey and softball. In addition to traditional sports, students play a number of non-competitive games and activities, such as jump roping, yoga and indoor “rock-climbing.” I continue to focus on sportsmanship, self-improvement, individual growth and teamwork.
