Physical Education 8
Kenilworth Junior High - Mr. Ortlinghaus
The first semester is quickly coming to an end!
We are finishing out the first semester with our Self-Defense Unit. There will also be one more round of fitness testing before we go away for winter break.
We will be on a finals schedule December 16, 17 and 18, with school ending at 12:35. Wednesday is 3rd & 6th periods; Thursday is 4th & 5th, and Friday is 1st & 2nd.
When we return to school in January, we will start off with our dance unit. This year is partner dancing - it is historically one of the units that the students enjoy most!
