Health and Physical Education are requirements for all students grades 5-8. In Dr. Helen Baldwin Middle School Physical Education classes, all students learn, practice and enjoy demonstrating competencies in a variety of skills relating to team activities, games and sports. Students are assessed through skill development, cognitive knowledge and effective behavior relating to how maturely they work together within team settings.
Safety is my #1 priority, and all students are required to wear closed toe sneakers and come prepared with a change of Physical Education clothes for class. To be exempt from P.E. class, and given an alternate assignment for any period of time, students must submit a written request from a physician to the school nurse. A note from a parent/guardian requesting a student be excused from class for one day must state the reason and needs to be successfully approved by the school nurse before the student reports to P.E. class.
