Physical activity, whether individual or organized, can have a tremendous positive impact on a student's wellbeing. The department promotes the development of leaders, team players and lifelong learners.
Other goals include the following:
To provide physical activity essential to optimum growth and development
To provide a wide range of sports/activities that will contribute to the pursuit of a lifelong healthy lifestyle
To provide opportunities for physical, mental, and social development through teamwork, strategies, conditioning, practices, and competitive games
To provide a learning environment to strengthen work ethic, accountability, sportsmanship, and discipline
To provide opportunities for individual sports/activities
Competition melds together physical potential and capabilities in a positive, meaningful way. Neither winning nor losing is at the heart of the class, but rather building character, self-confidence, and physical and mental toughness. The student is expected to put forth real effort and to participate with passion and purpose. TVT's goal is not to identify winners but to make winners of students on and off the field or court.
Physical Education plays an important role in the TVT Middle School student's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development. This is an ideal time for students to make physical activity a regular and important part of their daily lives. We offer our students a variety of activities including yoga, dance and rock climbing, while offering instruction that focuses on skills development and prepares our student for lifelong participation in physical activity. Grade Level: 6-8
Dance is a remarkably healthy exercise, and not just for fitness. Dancing can boost your brainpower, improve your outlook, relieve stress, grow your social circle, and strengthen and protect your most important organs... even if you have no rhythm. Dance Fitness is a class for all skill levels that aims to improve overall well-being through cardio, strengthening, and stretching exercises that are set to music and based in dance technique. This class is for PE Credit only and does not culminate in a performance. Grade Level: 6-8
