    Overview of Physical Education at McClure
    Physical education is an opportunity for students to exercise, have fun, develop skills, and learn more about nutrition, fitness concepts, and anatomy.  This course will focus on the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development of each student through various sports, success-oriented activities, physical challenges, cooperative play, and content knowledge aimed to promote a healthy lifestyle.

    We incorporate lessons and activities from the Five for Life curriculum, the adopted physical education curriculum of Seattle Public Schools, along with other supplemental programs and activities throughout the school year.  Fitness testing will be done on a periodic basis to assess the components of fitness.  These assessments will include the pacer, curl-ups (aka sit-ups), push-ups, and the sit-and-reach test. (These assessments have been suspended for the 2020-2021 school year) Students will be developing SMART Fitness Goals and completing distanced learning fitness challenges located on Welnet. Students will be reading, writing, and working on health and fitness topics on a regular basis in this class as well as completing a culminating project which combines all of the knowledge they’ve learned in the semester.
