Getting Fit After School

Missed a lot of school and need to make up PE credit?  Almost everyday SJHS holds an extra-curricular activity know as Intramurals that students can attend, to make up their PE credit.  Intramurals are held from 2:45 to 3:45 in the girls gym every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday after school.

Not only do they get to make up credit for PE, but they can also get extra credit while playing the sports that you love.  Mrs. Maughan, a pre-algebra teacher at SJHS, is one of the teachers that volunteered to help out and supervise the activities after school.  Mrs. Maughan says, “It is a really fun job, because I either get to watch students play sports, or I get to join them myself!”

Intramurals is also a great way to get fit.  Students play sports such as basketball, pickleball, badminton, volleyball, and many more sports.  Ethan Knowlton, an eighth-grade student said, “Intra-Murals are amazing. Plus I own at badminton.”  So if anyone ever needs more credit in PE, or if they just want to get fit and play sports, Intramurals is going on almost everyday after school.
