"The first wealth is health" Ralph Waldo EmersonWelcome to Coach Torretto's Physical Education Page!It is my philosophy that physical education should be exactly what the term indicates: educating students about their bodies and creating enthusiasm for physical activity. We, at Montgomery Middle School, strive to implement this philosophy in a personal and non-threatening manner so that each student can understand and appreciate the importance of attaining and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.I accomplish this goal by offering a well-balanced program that meets and exceeds all state and national standards and parallels the focus of our current State Physical Education Framework. As well as the IB MYP standards. The eighth graders works toward "Activity for Life" strategies.My program provides experiences. Through these experiences we attempt to instill in our students a sense of personal responsibility to attain and maintain a healthy body and appreciate the quality of life that comes with maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
