Physical Education

Physical education is a highly valued part of the curriculum in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 6. Students learn the fundamental body mechanics of fine motor, gross motor, manipulative, and locomotor skills along with the many benefits that physical activity alongside nutrition provide. Students in Pre-K through Grade 1 have physical education 5 times a week, while students in Grades 2 – 6 have physical education 4 times a week. The goal of the physical education program is to foster the love for movement that children already have by showing them how and why our bodies were made to move. Our students are continually encouraged to advocate for and teach others about health and wellness whether in class or at home with family and friends.

Psalm 139:13-14: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
