Physical Education

From the PE Staff...

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Our goal is to provide your child with a safe and supportive environment to explore the joy of movement in a positive and non-threatening educational experience. We will strive to assist your child in the pursuit of discovering his or her own individual potential. Physical Education provides us with unique opportunities to learn things about ourselves and others. We will provide your child with a positive and supportive learning experience that will transcend from our classes throughout the school day and into their personal life. We accomplish this goal by offering a well-balanced program that meets the state standards.

The Physical Education Model Content Standards for California Public Schools, Kindergarten through Grade Twelve represent the essential skills and knowledge that all students need to maintain a physically active, healthy lifestyle. Education Code section 51210 requires 200 minutes of Physical Education every 10 school days for students in grades one through six, and Education Code Section 51222 provides for 400 minutes of physical education every 10 school days for students in grades seven through twelve.

Physical education is an integral part of the educational program for all students. It teaches students how their bodies move, how to perform a variety of physical activities, the health-related benefits of regular physical activity, and specific skills that will allow them to adopt a physically active, healthy lifestyle. It also provides learning experiences that meet the developmental needs of students. With physical education, students become confident, independent, self-controlled and resilient. Secondly, they develop positive social skills; learn to set and strive for personal goals. Lastly, they learn to cooperate with others, accept responsibility for their own behavior; and improve their academic performance. In conclusion, we look forward to meeting you and our mutual effort in making this one of the best years of your child's school experience. Should you have any questions, concerns, problems or suggestions please feel free to contact us any time.

Sincerely,

Miss C. Boss
