     Project Adventure is a required part of the 9th grade Physical Education curriculum.  This course includes activities that promote self-esteem, personal confidence, respect and trust in others.  It also enhances problem-solving skills and develops skills essential for working within a group.

                Project Adventure students are expected to apply all necessary safety guidelines.  Students participate at their own level of comfort and follow the Full Value Contract.   Upon completion of each activity, students will reflect on their experience.  Each student will write about these experiences in two journal entries.

    The class will complete a 10 - 12 minute run twice a week.  Students are expected to come prepared to participate and work to the best of their ability each day.  Weather permitting; the class will take place outside for the remainder of the marking period.  Please make sure to dress appropriately.
