    Welcome to MVMS Physical Education! Our goal is to get students excited about moving while providing them with the knowledge and skills they will need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Throughout the year, we will explore different ways to exercise, which will include strength and cardiovascular endurance training as well as individual, dual and team sports. Students will learn how to design realistic fitness goals and monitor their progress as they work towards realizing their potential. They will also have the opportunity to more fully develop the interpersonal skills needed for successful social development by participating in teambuilding and cooperative activities. It’s going to be a great year!  Please read on for more information and highlights.
