The goal of the 9th grade Physical Education class is to focus on the importance of developing motor, cognitive, and personal-social skills, in order for students to be happy, healthy, and active across the lifespan. The physical education class will give WMAA students a chance to learn and practice skills in a variety of activities, while learning the importance of physical activity on their personal health and well-being. Throughout the semester, WMAA students will learn how to record and track their fitness progress, by using the results of their fitness tests, which will occur three times per year. This integral part of the Physical Education class will emphasize the importance of being accountable for one’s own health and being able to relate good health to positive performance in the classroom and in the work place.
