About Elementary PE
Physical training, health awareness, and character development are the biggest components of our Physical Education program. Physical Education is a twice a week class for students in Kindergarten through sixth grade. Students will engage in vigorous activities starting with warmups and dynamic stretching. The heart of this program is to foster a love for all things sports related. Students will have a chance to participate in classic sports like soccer, baseball, and basketball, while also being introduced to some new and exciting games. We also explore the world of chasing and fleeing games such as Capture the Flag and Sharks and Minnows. All these games are designed to focus on students achieving and maintaining a level of physical fitness for health and performance in the years to come. Learning to respect our bodies because they are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19) is a key part of our dialogue about health. Lastly, character development is another big component of our Physical Education program. We give students the mental and spiritual tools needed as they navigate competition sports, working on a team, learning difficult skills, and overcoming challenges on and off the field.
