Course Description: Middle PE (Intramural Games)
Physical Education for grades 5th thru 8th is designed to increase the awareness of physical exercise as a means of maximizing one’s productivity Health and wellness. It is the final phase of development where the student can now apply the locomotive skills achieved in prior class grades 1-4. The emphasis is placed on fun and excitement through intramural sports to level the playing field of the student that is not as physically developed in strength and/or coordination as his/her counterparts. This is done for all students to make exercise enjoyable and worth repeating while at the same time teaching proper participation and teamwork through wholesome competition with an understanding of upholding our traits Courage, Character and Community.
A major key in building team unity will be through the "Word of the Day" or "Thought of Day" shared by the teacher. This is done prior to the beginning of Intramural Games each day. Consequently, this inspires, motivates, and stimulates students to understand their role in giving to, living in, and loving their peers, community, and the world itself. There is no doubt that students will be challenged in ways that build courage, character and community.
