Welcome Back Panthers as we begin our Tenth Year as Potomac Middle School. It is going to be a very exciting year with plenty of new games and activities in PE in order to continue being active for life. This is also my Tenth year at Potomac Middle School and I am anticipating another great year in Physical Education.
Why do we need Physical Education?
Health and physical education is a vital and dynamic part of the total educational process. It contributes to physical, mental, and social development. Students have varied individual needs, interests and abilities which this program addresses in order to enable each student to realize their maximum potential. We believe this program should provide opportunities to develop total fitness, efficient motor skills, coordination, sporting behavior, and knowledge of activities which may be pursued throughout life. Physical, mental and social total fitness insures the individual’s pursuit of a long and healthy lifestyle.
