    Grade 10  
    Physical fitness, wellness, and safety express the goals of this discipline. 
    Students in grades 9-12 participate in co-educational curriculum in Physical 
    Education and Health. 
    In the Physical Education curriculum, students participate in activities which 
    provide: 
    1. Opportunities and challenges for students to gain and to maintain the 
    knowledge and procedural techniques for physical fitness conditioning; 
    2. a variety of team and individual sports to give students a wide basis for 
    choosing lifetime recreational pursuits; 
    3. experience to enhance such social growth and developmental skills as 
    loyalty, decision-making, camaraderie, cooperation, and a sense of 
    sportsmanship; 
    4. a means of achievement, accomplishment, and success; 
    5. the programs meet and exceed state mandates. 
    6. Adventure Games incorporates activities that increase self-esteem and 
    self-confidence, enhances problem-solving skills, and develops skills 
    necessary for working within a group. 
    The Physical Education curriculum progresses from larger motor activities 
    through team play to an emphasis on the development of lifetime sports. 
    The Physical Education/Health program emphasizes physical fitness, 
    lifetime skills, sportsmanship and team work. Knowledge of body systems, 
    building positive self-esteem, and the development of lifelong health and 
    safety habits are stressed and integrated with other curriculum areas and 
    special events. The overall goal is to offer challenging and varied programs 
    that are responsive to the community and to the student’s needs. 
     
     
    Students must dress in appropriate clothes for participating in outdoor physical activities.  We will be going outside each day in the first and fourth marking period.  Class participation consists of an active warm up and playing the sport by the rules and demonstrating use of proper techniques.
