     Physical Education is much more that just another recess or play time. It is an integral part of the total educational program.  It is a very important part of the day and teaches our students the value of developing physical skills.   The concepts, skills, and activities that we introduce throughout the year are designed to emphasize motor skills through games, activities and sports that contribute to all student's growth, development, and social attitudes, by teaching basic body management, skill development, and improvement, visual motor integration and spacial awareness.  Teamwork, sportsmanship and respect for peers and adults are encouraged during all classes.

Primary Grades

     In the primary grades, movement exploration, self development and cooperation skills are emphasized.  Students progress from simple movement to more complex patterns and then apply these skills to small group activities and games.  Some of the skills they will learn are:

   ♦  listening skills

   ♦  playground games

   ♦  locomotor skills

   ♦  running and dodging skills

   ♦  cooperative games

   ♦  balance activities

   ♦  manipulation skills (rolling, bouncing, throwing, and catching)

   ♦  rhythms and dance

   ♦  simple tumbling

   ♦  striking objects with hands and feet

   ♦  striking objects with implements such as, bats and racquets

   ♦  field games

Grades 4 and 5

     In 4th and 5th grades, combining skills, higher level fitness, wellness activities, and an introduction to game/sport strategies are emphasized.  Enjoyment of activities, as well as success for each student, is not dependent on athletic ability but rather on the concept of achieving individual excellence.  Cooperation rather than competition is emphasized for all students.  We will cover:

   ♦  playground games

   ♦  running and dodging

   ♦  short and long jump rope

   ♦  throwing and catching

   ♦  rolling/bowling activities

   ♦  rhythms and dance

   ♦  basic tumbling

   ♦  passing, dribbling, and shooting

   ♦  striking objects with hands and feet

  ♦  striking objects with implements, such as bats and racquets
