Physical Education

Story in Physical Education

Physical education is an opportunity for students to exercise, have fun, develop skills, and learn through cooperative play and storytelling activities. In PE, we will focus on the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development of each student in alignment with the national PE standards and responsive classroom teaching.


  • We want our students to enjoy being physically active, and to come away with the skills, knowledge, and attitude that will help them lead a long, happy, healthy life.
  • We hope that PE will be a safe space where our students can build community, relieve stress, be physically active, and have fun connecting with their classmates.
  • The most important thing to us is that every student is finding ways to be physically active and healthy. PE should be a source of fun and well-being.
  • Please ask your child about their PE experience and encourage them with positive words. Participation is the key to making this meaningful. You get out what you put in!
