Physical Education

 Philosophy

 

We believe that the physical education classroom should be a positive learning environment, a place where every student has the opportunity to be successful. Physical education stresses not only the physical aspects of a child's lifestyle, but the cognitive and social aspects as well. We strive to teach the importance of teamwork, cooperation, and sportsmanship through various team and lifelong fitness activities. Lastly, the students are encouraged to participate in additional physical activities to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
