What’s Going On in Physical Education?



Students will learn the importance of respect, caring, fairness, trustworthiness, citizenship, and responsibility throughout the course of the year as we promote good character in physical education. 


Students will come together to problem solve and complete challenges throughout this fun filled unit.

Field Day

All students participate in this all day celebration of fitness and community.


What's a healthy snack?  Why should I exercise? Students will learn how to answer these questions and more as we learn how to make healthy choices together.


Children will climb cargo nets, a rock wall, discover new exercises, and learn about the importance of lifelong fitness.


Each child will learn how to rollerblade at their own pace.  As the students progress, we introduce various skating skills.

Sports Skills

Students will practice  a variety of athletic skills

Whittle Gym

In this adventurous unit, students will climb the whittle gym, as we decorate and transform the gym into a completely new setting.


The Many Benefits of Exercise

Every child can benefit from regular exercise.  Kids who are active will:

  • Have stronger muscles and bones
  • Have a leaner body because exercise helps control body fat
  • Be less likely to become overweight
  • Possibly lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels
  • Have a better outlook on life


Besides enjoying the health benefits of regular exercise, kids who are physically fit are better able to handle physical and emotional challenges. 


Health Tips

  • If it’s not in your house, you are less likely to eat it.
  • Go for a walk around the block after dinner.
  • Find healthier alternatives to your favorite snacks.
  • Find a friend to exercise with and keep each other accountable.
  • Exercising with your child can be gratifying and will set a great example for them.

Try a variety of activities to keep things fun and interesting.
