Our Physical Education program provides students with opportunities to learn and develop motor skills, and to become aware of the different components of physical fitness and how we can improve in these. We give instruction in a variety of motor skills that are designed to enhance the physical, mental, and social/emotional development of every child. Through fitness education and assessment students learn about the benefits gained from being physically active as well as the skills and knowledge to incorporate safe, satisfying physical activity into their lives. Students will also gain understanding about good nutrition and how it can lead to optimum health, and how to keep themselves safe in a variety of situations. Responsible behaviors including cooperation, teamwork, respecting others are also stressed.
*Students are expected to fully participate in P.E. class. In the event that a child's participation will be limited due to illness or injury, a note should be sent from the parent or guardian. If the condition will keep the student out of activity for an extended period, a doctor's note should be included.
*Shoes that are appropriate for physical activity (tennis shoes, sneakers, athletic shoes) must be worn.
Physical Education measurement topics include Movement Competency, Cognitive Abilities, Lifetime Fitness, and Responsible Behaviors.
Students in the primary grades are graded as follows: (in regards to current grading period student is…)
+ = consistently demonstrating skills √= learning/developing skills Ø = not demonstrating skills
Students in the intermediate grades earn letter grades.
Students are also graded on personal development or conduct, and effort.
Please notify your classroom teacher and the coaches if your child has a condition (such as asthma, allergies, diabetes, or seizures).
