The focus of the elementary physical education program is the introduction and exploration of physical skills and concepts. As an integral part of the elementary school program that uniquely contributes to the school’s overall goals, physical education emphasizes the child’s physical, motor, cognitive, social, and emotional development. It is critical at the elementary level that students be guided through a series of developmentally appropriate experiences. These activities promote a desire to engage in physical activities, develop a sense of self-worth, encourage cooperation and self-control, and lead to choices that promote a healthy life style.
The focus of the middle school physical education program is to provide a wide variety of physical activities and experiences that promote the mastery of the core skills introduced at the elementary level. Middle school physical education programs will continue to build a framework for lifetime activities and healthy living skills. Middle school is a time of transition, which brings about changes in physical, emotional, social, and intellectual worlds. To successfully bridge this transition, students will participate in activities that empower them to assume responsibility for their own lifetime health, wellness, and fitness.
