November Phys. Ed. Info

​Middle School students in grades 5-8 will be starting a volleyball unit. This unit is designed to provide the students with some very basic skills and knowledge to participate in volleyball. Hopefully we will acquire the social skills necessary to work together in a positive and productive manner. Objectives in the unit will be for students to perform basic skills such as forearm pass (bump), overhead set, and serve. The goal is for students to display etiquette and sportsmanship during this unit. Elementary students will continue to develop and improve their locomotor and manipulative skills.

This will improve their eye-hand coordination. 3rd and 4th grades will be doing volleyball lead-up activities and games.
