As of Dec. 2nd we’ll be back in fitness until January 13th. Students should be dressed down each day in their Liberty PE shirt, shorts or athletic pants and athletic shoes.

Each day we will follow the same basic routine:
Warm up stretch
Cardio activity
Skill based practice
Skill application game

This fitness unit will be volleyball but will include many different variations of the standard games in order to practice and improve skills, apply fitness principles, and, most importantly, help to create a life long love of recreation and sport!

Students should get into the habit of checking skyward often to get the most up to date grading information.  Work that has not been turned in will show as "missing" and recieve a "0" until it's turned in graded.  Work that has been turned in but has not been graded will be marked with "*" which does not affect the grade.
