Physical Education/Health

Through our health and physical education program, our mission is to promote lifelong learning through physical activity, exercise, & sport while supporting students in making health conscious decisions, meeting challenges, and participating in productive, and healthy behaviors. We believe that through a comprehensive and quality program, our students will develop into individuals who value physical activity and maintain physically active lifestyles, becoming proficient in a variety of activities and competent in many. Our students will demonstrate personal responsibility, character, integrity,and respect for others in the classroom, gymnasium,  the great outdoors, and in life.

3rd-6th Fitness Challenge Program

1/3/18- 3rd-6th grade will be starting a new monthly fitness challenge. Everyday when students come to class. They will have the opportunity to complete a small challenge and track their own progress. At the end of each month students will be reward for their efforts and progress as an individual. The grade level with the most completed tasks will also get to pick a game to play in Physical Education at the beginning of the next month. 

The goal of this fitness challenge is to get students more involved with being physically active while creating individual and class competition. 

Attached are some examples of challenges students will have in January.  pe001.pdf  pe002.pdf
