All students in grades toddler through eight participate in physical education. Each class meets two times a week. The program emphasizes the importance of physical activity and encourages the development of lifetime fitness. Students begin every class with a series of exercises that target certain muscle groups and prepares them for the class activities. Students are asked to participate in a wide range of sports and activities to acquire and develop basic athletic skills. Students are always taught the importance of teamwork and good sportsmanship during all class activities. Safety is always a point of emphasis in class.
The goals of the physical education program are to promote the physical well-being of all the students. Students develop their fine motor skills, gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, foot-eye coordination, problem solving, decision making, and critical thinking by engaging in various exercises and sport activities. The goal is for the students to have a positive attitude about the importance of being physically active.
The students are also expected to work cooperatively with classmates and to show good sportsmanship and teamwork, which will carry over to other activities the students participate in both in and outside of school.
