RIGHT NOW IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION...

March:

During March, middle school students will be playing tchoukball and participating in different fitness based activities each day. The students will learn new games and exercises along with the benefits of each exercise to their everyday lives.

The Elementary school students and 6 th grade students are participating in different Gymnastics activities. Throughout the unit students will learn to control their bodies while moving in a ton of different ways. Students will perform beginner to intermediate gymnastic exercises along with fitness exercises to improve their muscular strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance. 

Both middle and elementary school students will be given the Fitnessgram fitness assessment toward the end of March and beginning of April.


Description :

  • Physical Education is based on the development of the mind and body. Educational objectives are reached through participating in mental and physical activity. In the Physical Education classroom, students build their knowledge and level of physical fitness, explore and learn a wide variety of neuro-muscular skills, and develop responsible social behaviors that promote personal and group success. Written work and reading assignments provide for the integration of academic skills and present an opportunity for traditional cognitive challenges.
  • Each class includes fitness components, skill development, proper use and care of equipment, rules, strategies, and etiquette. The emphasis is directed towards lifetime participation and fitness.
  • Physical Education curriculum follows the guidelines stated in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards for Health and Physical Education.
  • One marking period or quarter per year in Middle School, students will attend health class instead of physical education.
