Elementary Physical Education

  • Description of the K-5 Physical Education Program:   

    • All students receive Physical Education instruction. Students will be assessed in the following areas: manipulative skills, movement concepts/nonmanipulative skills, locomotor skills, fitness, and the application of rules, concepts, and strategies. Our goal is for our students to feel successful while participating in a variety of movement activities. This will help guide our students in developing a positive attitude towards being physically active (striving to get 60 min. of physical activity daily).
