Injuries LImiting Participation

If your student experiences an injury that temporarily limits his/her physical ability, s/he may continue to earn PE credit through modified activity.  Please have the doctor provide a note indicating what specific activities your child can do, OR have the doctor complete and sign this form.  Your child should then give the form to the school nurse, who will review and inform the P.E. teacher.  NOTE: PE Modification Forms for doctor’s signature are given and explained to PE students at the beginning of each quarter.

Physcal Education Courses

Freshmen CORE

During their freshman year, 9th grade physical education students will take a series of courses that follow state guidelines/standards. Activities include aquatics, badminton, dance, yoga, weight training, track and field and functional fitness as well as team sports. They will also partake in the FITNESSGRAM physical fitness testing per the state of California in order to promote lifelong habits of staying physically active. 


Sophomore CORE

As sophomores, students will take a course to satisfy California state standards in the areas of gymnastics, combative and tumbling. Self-defense techniques are also incorporated into the unit to further increase their cardiovascular endurance in a safe and fun environment. During other quarters throughout the year, sophomores can also take a variety of physical education elective courses. 



Once students have satisfied California state content requirements, they have the ability to choose from a variety of PE activities throughout their years at Wilcox. Some of the included activities are street hockey, volleyball, indoor/outdoor soccer, basketball, pickleball, tennis, frisbee golf, speedball, ultimate frisbee, lacrosse, tennis and functional fitness training.


Charger Power Fitness

Every third quarter Wilcox PE students train daily for the fitness testing program which is performed for one week at the end of the quarter. If they score A’s and B’s on their six fitness tests (mile run, pull ups, sit ups, sit and reach, and jump and reach), students receive a grey charger power t-shirt. If they score straight A’s on all six tests, students receive a black power charger t-shirt. These high achieving students are recognized in front of their peers when the shirts are presented.

Our Mission statement


We offer various activities throughout the school year for Wilcox students to identify and achieve a personal level of excellence in fitness. Physical education students will increase their aerobic capacity, develop muscular strength and endurance, set and evaluate fitness goals, develop leadership and team-building skills. They will also learn new and exciting fitness activities that they can use for a lifetime. All physical education classes are co-educational and offer weekly development of the muscular and cardiovascular systems centered around the California State Standards. 

“We Are Charger Strong” is printed on the Wilcox PE t-shirts as it embraces our school's Student Learner Outcomes and promotes the mindset of giving their best efforts. It also encourages the enhancement of a growth mindset that correlates the science behind the notion of strong body, strong mind.
