Middle School Physical Education:
Students in 5-8th grades have completed their fall fitness testing and have set baseline scores and times. Next April we will retest to see if their has been growth and improvement in physical strength, cardio endurance, speed and agility, and flexibility. Students will work all year long at fitness routines that will help them to grow in each of these fitness areas.
Wednesday will be our "Workout Days" where the MS students will participate in strength/flexibility/ cardio workouts developed by personal trainers and myself. We will focus on our core muscles quite a bit during these workouts.
Our sports related activites on Thursdays will include Gator Ball and Football in October, and Volleyball in November.
