Phy Ed / Health

Physical Education (PE) courses in the middle school are based on the acquisition of knowledge and skills that provide the foundation for sport, a physically active lifestyle, and social development through physical activity. Activities typically include those that increase strength, endurance, and flexibility: reinforce safe technique: teach the rules and conventions of games and sports: and explore the relationship between physical activity and health. Specific content depends upon state standards for each grade level. 

This course emphasizes the knowledge and skills that promote sound bodies and minds, prevent disease and dysfunction, and reduce risk. Students will focus on a variety of topics including mental and emotional health, diseases and disorders, chemical use/abuse (tobacco, alcohol, drugs), CPR/First Aid, physical fitness, stress management and human growth, development and sexuality.
