Welcome to physical education. During PE, we endeavor to become fitter and stronger, while learning to challenge ourselves physically and learn new skills and team sports.
In Kindergarten through 2nd grade, we engage in activities that teach us spacial awareness, dexterity and being able to move safely with and around others. 3rd grade is where we begin learning our team sports such as football, volleyball, basketball, soccer and the ever popular street hockey. Also beginning in grade 3, we conduct our physical fitness exams. In 3rd and 4th, we have timed runs, and starting in 5th grade, we begin our sit up and push up tests.
I encourage every student to give 100% during class. It is not height or speed or talent that helps you succeed…it is hard work!
