This year in Physical Education, Coach Nolan hopes to spark student interest in physical activity and exercise, teach students about their bodies and sports, build fundamental skills, increase sportsmanship, and have fun while being active! Through various sports, drills, and games he hopes to also teach important lessons such as teamwork, cooperation, listening, respect for others, and also build self-confidence. He likes to mix it up as much as possible by having students participate in a variety of activities such as soccer, baseball, strength/core building, conditioning, basketball, volleyball, badminton, kickball, track & field, and much more! Lastly, Coach Nolan hopes to keep improving on the annual “Olympics Week” that is held at the end of the school year.
