Physical Education

Our mission in physical education is to help all students acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to lead healthy, active lifestyles throughout their lives. Students develop motor skills, identify movement concepts, and work to maintain a health enhancing level of physical fitness in a safe and structured environment. Our curriculum is designed to help students develop acceptable social and personal behaviors in physical activity settings.

The K-2 students are called “Learners.” They learn basic motor skills like throwing, catching, or kicking and they practice movement patterns, for example moving in pathways or different directions. All skills are used in movement activities and game play. The Learners are given a lot of class time to learn, practice, and refine basic motor skills.
