    **Important Note**
    Physical Education is a means to continue fighting the epidemic of obesity that is gripping our nation. Current statistics indicate that nearly 67% of the U.S. population is now at risk of becoming obese or has already become obese based on the CDC's BMI scale.
     
    Physical Education:
     
    *    Students will be given the opportunity to participate in Physical Education throughout the school year. Third and fourth grade
          students will continue working on the loco-motor skills introduced to them in the primary grades with a greater emphasis on body
          awareness, as well as, building teamwork concepts. There will be many skills that help with basic hand/eye coordination so vital in
          many routine activities we complete each and every day.
     
    *    Fifth and sixth grade students will have a greater focus on individual and team sports, as well as, team building/cooperative games
          that help students develop skills used to work in groups and accomplish a designated goal.
     
    *    As always, participation is a factor in grading. Students will be expected to give effort during class. The class is not designed to
          create "athletes", but is designed to incorporate movement designed to make a student become more active. 

    All classroom courses will follow the grading scale that has been adopted by the Troy Area School District.
