Physical Education

Fitness is Fun! Students will learn to understand that their body is a temple of God and because of that they should strive to keep it healthy. Students will participate in PE five days a week (K through Grade 4) and four days a week (Grades 5 though 8.) Each grade participates in the Presidential Physical Fitness Program.

Both competitive and non-competitive game situations will be encouraged in the lower grades and experienced in the middle school grades. The skills learned in each grade build upon the next. Opportunities will be presented for students to belong to a group in which each child is accepted, and we will work to develop leadership skills in the group. Students will learn to work together through cooperative learning activities and the emphasis on all activities will be about fun and teamwork, not winning or losing.
