Exeter-Milligan Update: Physical Education

From the PE Department by Darcy White

Students in Grades K-2 have been participating in the
President's Challenge Physical Fitness Testing Program.
The Fitness Program includes five events that measure
muscular strength/endurance, cardiorespiratory endurance,
speed, agility, and flexibility.  They have also been
practicing hitting a ball off of a tee and playing "tee"
ball.  They will wrap up the school year with soccer,
softball (tee ball), and other "outdoor" activities that
will get them prepared for Elementary Field Day, which is
scheduled for May 13.

Sophomores are involved in a badminton unit. They chose
partners and have been involved in quite a competitive
"round robin" tournament.  Megan Zwickl and Robbie
Androyna are the current leaders of the competition.  They
will wrap up the school year with softball, pickle ball, and
the President's Challenge Fitness Tests.

Pictured are Jackson Beethe and Brock Steuben working to
improve their cardiorespiratory endurance.
