    Missed updating last week, but I think the guys had a lot of fun and learned about sportsmanship and teamwork.  Remember, Physical Education is an experiential lab where you move your body to learn and have fun.  

    Good job to 8th grade 1st period for winning the dress-out challenge for last week.  Remember, classes that have the lowest number of non-dressouts of each grade will get to choose class activities after the fitness portion of class.  

    Monday will be a different schedule (Junior Achievement Day), so as I understand the schedule you will not have PE on Monday.

    We will be in gym this week!!! Remember we will be getting outside as many days as possible so please bring a water bottle, a small towel and a hat to wear when outside if you'd like.  All sport units will be composed of team groups this week and team practice.  You will have one day of practice and two days of scrimmages and a one class tournament.  Be ready to demonstrate sportsmanship throughout all game situations.  

    Before heading outside we will review key concepts of the game.  Next week (Thursday/Friday) we will have a test for each game covering game rules and key terms of the particular game.
