Physical Education

I have designed a program for children that help them develop the physical competence that leads to confidence and participation in physical activity for a lifetime. My goal in physical education is to instill a love of movement and to teach the importance of healthy lifestyles. My hope in doing this is that our children will continue to be active well into adulthood. Physical education is an integral part of the total educational program. It offers an unique contribution in the development of knowledge, understanding, and positive attitudes concerning human movement.

 

Physical education of today is far different than that of previous years. Whereas games are still used to practice concepts, we also stress health, wellness, nutrition, and lifetime fitness in our classes. Our quality physical education program is important because it provides learning experiences that meet the developmental needs of students, which help improve a child’s mental alertness, academic performance, readiness to learn, and enthusiasm for learning.

 

I do ask for your cooperation in ensuring that the proper shoes are worn on P.E. days. This enables your child to do their very best job possible during an active class. Campbell soup labels are always being collected as a way of receiving free athletic equipment. Please remove the upc label and return that to your child’s teacher. Thank you for your continued support.
