"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity."
John F. KennedyOur curriculum is unique and diverse. We select activities and instruct movement experiences that are designed to challenge the body and mind of each student. We discuss the importance of exercise and it's relationship to brain function, develop each students understanding of resiliency and level of teamwork in group settings and provide an opportunity for students to explore, create and share thoughts and ideas with one another. We enhance our practice and instructional methods through the use of technology and teacher collaboration.Our K-2 program introduces our students to the fundamental movement patterns of skipping, hoping, leaping, running, walking, jumping and galloping. Students are taught special awareness, directions, pathways, levels, body awareness and locomotor and non-locomotor movement patterns. Students study balance, weight transfer, force, speed and opposition while learning the basic skill forms of dribbling, kicking, punting, striking, rope jumping and volleying. During our gymnastics unit students practice climbing, yoga, rolling, and balancing. Students in second grade participate in a interdisaplinary study of orienteering. Physical fitness is a theme and concept that is practiced throughout the school year.If parents or students have questions, comments or thoughts you would like to share about our physical education program, please do not hesitate to contact me.
