Basic Physical Education & Fitness--Class Syllabus




     This is a required class needed to graduate and is typically taken as a 9th grade student.  This course is a one semester (18 weeks) that is linked to Health class.  This course will provide students with opportunities to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical fitness and increase their knowledge of fitness concepts.  Fitness testing will be conducted as outlined by the “Presidents Physical Fitness Standards” to establish baseline fitness levels.  This class is designed to enhance and improve a student’s physical and mental well being.  A healthy level of physical activity requires participation in all activities. Typically, a week will include emphasis functional flexibility, agility, strength as well as the selected unit activity.  The results are skill development, and improved fitness level, socialization and cooperation among our students and a realistic attitude on the body’s capabilities.  The goal of the P. E. department is for each and every student to leave Oakridge with a base knowledge in a variety of lifetime activities and the desire and the means to maintain a physically active and healthy lifestyle.
