Lower School Physical Education Curriculum
The physical education curriculum focuses on cooperation, teamwork, and sportsmanship with a strong emphasis on fitness and skill development. The curriculum helps to develop social skills but also aids in strengthening motor and non-locomotor skills that are necessary to be stronger and more coordinated in the activities that students engage in.
Goal: Ultimately, the goal is for our students to have an enjoyable and successful PE experience. When children have a strong foundation in PE, they become teenagers who love to try new activities and sports, developing a lifelong passion to be physically active. Additionally, they become people who are more confident in themselves.
