Physical Education

Physical Education is designed to enhance a child’s overall physical development, and include activities that are fun, engaging, and physically active. The physical education program stresses body awareness, basic motor skills, and eye-hand coordination. As students get older, they are gradually introduced to team and other organized sport activities such as volleyball and basketball. Students in all grades meet with the physical education instructor twice a week for forty five minutes each session. Students in middle school meet with the physical education instructor two times a week for forty-five minutes each session.

Seventh and eighth grade students meet the nurse once a week for one semester for health/wellness instruction.
