6th Grade

Athletics

The importance of exercise, proven to enhance academic success and mental well-being, is is valued and emphasized throughout the Middle School Physical Education experience.

Middle school physical education and wellness classes focus on cooperation and culture-building group activities. With fun games and activities, they improve their hand-eye coordination, fine and gross motor movements, teamwork, and physical fitness. Students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone in all activities, especially while completing the FitnessGram assessment, which includes tests of cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, and flexibility.

All middle school students are encouraged to participate in after-school, interscholastic sports, though they are not required. Most students enjoy trying new sports, finding new interests and discovering talents in themselves. Teams practice and play games three days per week. Every middle school team emphasizes cooperation, sportsmanship, teamwork, and the ability to win and lose graciously. Most teams offer two levels of play. An “A” team consists of the older more experienced players, while the “B” teams are comprised of newer players looking to develop their skills.
