As a physical education teacher at ACMS, the curriculum is a fitness based program (aligned with the National and State standards) that allows students to work at their own level of proficiency.  In short, fundamental motor skills and fitness concepts are introduced to students and then modified into patterns that can be transferred to activities. Once skills have been mastered, students can successfully apply them in small-sided games and fitness activities.


 

Achieving a high level of fitness and an understanding/appreciation of the importance of physical health is the priority.  Our intention is to expose students to a variety of physical activities and help them become competent in these activities, which in turn will encourage them to participate in physical activity outside of school and become lifelong movers.

 

SHAPE America's National Standards
