Dear Parents and Students:

 

Welcome to Physical Education at Lake Como.  I am looking forward to an exciting year with you!  Please read the following information and keep it in your binder.

 

Course Description:   Physical Education is a rigorous elective program that enables students to successfully prepare for a healthier style of living. The purpose of Physical Education is to make the student aware of fitness and how valuable it is in their daily lives. The goal of Physical Education is to equip students with study, research, communication skills and exercise necessary for them to maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout their life.  The students will learn the value of good health and nutrition and the effect it has on learning.  Students will also learn skills and rules necessary for physical education activities and sports.

 

Dressing Out:  All middle school students are required to dress out for PE.  This means they cannot wear the clothes they wore to school to PE.  They must have on proper shoes, sneakers or similar rubber bottom shoes protecting the feet.  Sandals are not allowed.

 

Instructional Philosophy:  The Physical Education class is composed of several different elements, making students more successful and healthier in their everyday routine.  Students will learn proper safety practices and techniques.  Students will demonstrate responsible behaviors, respect, fair play and good sportsmanship for all activities in Physical Education.

 

Course Goals:  The goal of the Lake Como PE elective is to prepare our students to succeed in middle school and lead a healthier life.

 

  • Develop and implement effective exercise habits.
  • Examine their life in order to establish and reach short and long-term goals.
  • Students will engage and succeed in a rigorous course of health and nutrition.
