Mr. Dennis Richardson

Welcome to Tieton Intermediate School Physcial Education!!! The goal of physical education is to develop our students to be physical literate individuals who have the knowledge, skills and confidence to enjoy a LIFETIME of healthful physical activity.

Students will participate in many Locomotor skills (running, jumping, etc.) and Manipluative skills (throwing, catching, dribbling, volleying, etc).  This year, students will rotate in the morning every 6 weeks participating in physical education lessons each day of the week.   In the afternoon, ALL students will rotate through a schedule that allows them to work on team building skills, fitness and fast pace activities every other day (4th & 6th grade 15 minutes, 5th grade every third day for 30 minutes).
