     Course Description and Program Goals

    B. Gale Wilson Physical Education classes are designed to help students understand, value, and experience the importance of physical activity for their health, well being, and self-esteem.

    As an integral part of the school's curriculum, the Physical Education program strives to offer activities in which all students can develop skills through physical, social, emotional and mental interactions and activities.


    1)       to promote physical fitness and stress the positive relationship between physical activity and health.

    2)       Demonstrate the skills and knowledge necessary to participate in a variety of physical activities.

    3)       To develop interpersonal skills and exhibit positive character traits during physical activity.


    The Physical Education program at B. Gale Middle School exposes students to a wide variety of activities. These activities focus on individual/team skills and concepts along with an emphasis on physical fitness and personal wellness. In conjunction with class units, we use portfolios and writing prompts for writing across the curriculum.
