Physical Education


    The Physical Education Program at Wells Middle School strives to have a positive impact on all.  This will be done through:

    • The continued improvement of motor skills as developmentally appropriate for the early adolescent;
    • The ongoing assessment of individual fitness levels;
    • The realization that personal and social responsibility are vital components of human relations.

    We believe that all students have the ability to accept physical activity as an important part of life.  Fitness, self-awareness, weight control and stress management are understood as benefits of physical activity.  Students will be encouraged to demonstrate leadership, respect and problem solving through participation in organized games and activities.  Middle School Physical Education must be appropriate for the distinct developmental level of early adolescence.

    Detailed information about the Physical Education program can be found in the Curriculum Guide (page 13).
