The focus of 7th and 8th grade Physical Education is team and individual sports and lifetime fitness.  Junior High Physical Education will expose students to an immense variety of games, sports, and activities that provide discipline and teach cooperation while being active and having fun.  Each unit will test the students’ knowledge and understanding of the activity as well as their ability to actively participate.


Additionally, throughout the year, students will engage in a variety of fitness activities that incorporate the five areas of fitness (Body Composition, Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance, Cardiovascular Endurance and Flexibility).  Our Fitnessgram testing program will provide our students with a better understanding of what their physical strengths and weaknesses are and how they can improve their overall health and fitness.  Students will complete a fitness portfolio, chart their progress, and set goals.  This course will provide our students with all the skills needed in order to live a healthy lifestyle while sparking interest and motivation.
