WELCOME

Welcome to Mr. Ellison's Sports, Games Fitness Course for both grades 7 & 8. The goal of this course is to improve fitness, teach sports and physical activity skills as well as develop physical confidence and awareness. Students will regularly participate in fitness activities, learn about anatomy & physiology, play and compete in sports, develop team sports skills and explore many subjects relating to health and wellness. Go Wolves!


HOW IS THIS COURSE DIFFERENT FROM P.E?

All students at EPMS must take Physical Education. California State Standards for Education guide the curriculum for that course and it is assessed based on national assessments. This is an electives or enrichment course that is geared toward students developing a paradigm for their personal lifetime fitness and wellness. Where one student may thrive on long distance running for cardiovascular health, another may abhor the thought. Life long wellness depends on individuals finding their own pathway towards health and wellness.
