Justice Page Middle School PE and Health Course Descriptions

Physical Education
6th, 7th & 8th grade students will participate in coordination and sport, fitness, cooperative, and lifetime activities. These opportunities will address movement skill and knowledge, physical fitness, personal and social behavior, and the value of living a physically active lifestyle. Students will also have an opportunity to work as a team, develop and refine previously learned skills, learn new concepts in fitness development, and assess their own active lifestyle.

Learning targets graded in Phy Ed can be seen on your specific teacher's web page.
