Welcome to Wag's PE and C&R webpage

Physical Education
Welcome to Girls PE!  You daughter will get to experience a wide variety of activities ranging from the major sports (i.e. football, soccer, basketball, etc.) to lifetime activities (i.e. tennis, badminton, Frisbee, etc.).  We will be learning about proper nutrition, hygeine basics, self empowerment as well as how to get the best benefits from your activity/workouts.

Citizenship & Responsibility

Welcome to C&R!  This class embodies the 6 pillars of character.  Your son or daughter will be working on service learning projects within the local community and trying to branch out caring and kind characteristics to their friends, neighbors, teachers and families.  My goal is to have my students really gain an understanding that we need to give back to the community and appreciate all that we have and work for in the future.

About Me

I am Melissa Waggoner and I have taught Physical Education in Gilbert Public Schools for 10 years and Citizenship and Responsibility for 2 years.  I love what I do and I love making a difference in students' lives physically and mentally.  I graduated from ASU ("GO DEVILS!") and can't wait to see the Cubbies win the World Series here soon!  I coach 8th grade softball here at Desert Ridge Junior High School and love to participate in everything spirited on campus.
