K - 5 Philosophy

Physical education is an integral part of the general education program that significantly contributes to the total growth and development of each student, primarily through movement experiences. It is unique because it provides a balance of activities that reflect and challenge the divergent needs of students in the psychomotor, cognitive and affective domains.

The pursuit of optimal fitness and the development of a healthy body are the essence of a good physical education program. Physical educators teach the fundamental concepts, components and the primary principles of physical fitness to develop positive attitudes and motivational techniques that will be continued throughout one’s life. Students are provided the opportunity to experience personal success, develop self-esteem, promote respect for others and acquire interpersonal skills.

As physical educator we are committed to guiding our students to making healthy lifestyle decisions. Our K-5 Physical Education curriculum is designed in accordance with the standards of the National Association for Sport and Physical Education.
