Greetings Wildcat Parents!
In the months of November and December, students in Health and Physical Education will be demonstrating their understanding of movement concepts as it relates to striking skills through soccer-related activities and team games. Our soccer unit is a favorite among students. Students will also complete the nationally mandated Fitness Gram Fitness Test.
As always, we encourage parents to promote a healthy lifestyle to their children by providing healthy food choices and ensuring that they stay physically active away from school!
Our goal in physical education is for everyone to learn to make healthy choices and feel successful when participating in a variety of activities. This enables students to develop a positive attitude toward physical activity and to develop healthy habits, which will hopefully continue throughout their lives.
Students will be encouraged to have fun and enjoy P.E. They will also be encouraged to participate to the best of their ability in a wide variety of activities. At the elementary level, certain skills are taught so that students will be able to pursue competitive sports as well as lifetime sports.
In Physical Education students will learn to:
· demonstrate competency in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of activities
· demonstrate understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics as you apply them to the learning and performance of physical activities
· to participate regularly in physical activity
· achieve and maintain a health enhancing level of physical fitness
· exhibit responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others in physical activity settings
· value physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and/or social interaction
