Grade 6-8 Learning Expectations--Physical Education
Physical Education is an integral part of the educational experience that contributes to the development of the individual through the unique medium of physical activity – human movement.  It is a carefully planned sequence of learning experiences designed to fulfill the growth, development, and behavioral attitudes involving health, wellness, personal, and athletic fitness of the students.
