Health and Physical Education units will be integrated together throughout the school year. We will begin our curriculum outside with introductory/ cooperative games. This will give incoming students the opportunity to become acclimated to the class, as well as, familiarize themselves with others in the class. We will begin our program with outside physical education activities such as soccer,touch or flag football,ultimate frisbee. We will transition inside with a health unit on gateway drugs.Then indoor activities such as volleyball,handball and wiffleball will take place. Our second health unit is nutrition and generally that occurs after the holidays. We return to activity with badminton, pickleball,eclipse ball, and basketball. Our final health unit covers mental health. As the weather turns to spring we will again go outdoors for track and field,softball,and tennis.
