    Union Elementary Goals

    Illinios State Goals for elementary students are to focus on their motor and multi-tasking skills, demonstrate control when performing fundamental locomotor, non-locomotor and manipulative skills, understand spatial awareness and relationships to objects and people. We will focus on the students' directionalty and functional words to help them with following directions, as well as safety. Students also will begin to learn about stretching and exercising.


    Union Middle School Goals 

              Illinios State Goals for middle school students are to develop their control when performing combinations and sequences of locomotor patterns within activities. Showing students how to analyze efficient and inefficient movement. Having students identify offensive, defensive, and cooperative strategies in selected activities. Give knowledge of team sports, communicating, and leadership. Every month students will be introduced to a new sports unit. Students will be given a study guide and then be tested each month on that unit. To assess students' fitness levels students will be tested quarterly to see their fitness levels. These are based off of the Presidential Fitness Testing.

    *As a reminder; all students in grades 6th-8th must change into their required shorts and shirt for Physical Education.  This prepares students for Joliet Central or Lincoln-Way West P.E. class.
