Physical Education

In PreK-2nd Grade students develop their basic locomotors skills, such as hopping, skipping, galloping, running, leaping, and sliding.  They participate in various activities such as jumping rope, throwing, catching, and striking, using many different implements.  As well, they develop their non-locomotors skills such as twisting, bending, and turning as they develop balance and hand-eye coordination.  They play games which help them to chase, flee, and dodge in a variety of different situations.  They begin to learn and identify appropriate behaviors while participating in activities that require them to play fairly and cooperatively.

In grades 3, 4, and 5 students begin fitness testing in the areas of cardiovascular strength and endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. They develop the basic skills and learn the basic rules needed to participate in team sports such as basketball, baseball, football, hockey, tennis, track and field, soccer, volleyball, kickball, horseshoes, capture the flag, tag games, bocce ball, and many more.

In grades 6 through 8, students evaluate their own cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, muscular strength, and muscular endurance levels and gain an understanding of how to improve or maintain each.  They develop their understanding of the history, rules, and regulations of individual and team sports while improving their basic skills of throwing, catching, kicking, passing, and striking throughout a variety of different applications.  They participate in many activities including basketball, baseball, football, hockey, tennis, volleyball, track and field, soccer, and weight training while developing their ability to play fairly and demonstrate good sportsmanship.
