Kindergartners-2nd graders will be working on basic skills and strategies of exercise and movement in PE.

3rd-6th graders will be introduced to different sports, skills, and strategies throughout the school year in PE.

7th-8th graders will be receiving an education on the rules to many sports, skills, techniques, and strategies.

3-8 graders will be completing athletic testing and goal setting.  It is a great way for the students to see where they are individually in an athletic sense and then set some goals to better themselves.  It will be so fun for your children to set reasonable goals and observe the excitement when they reach them. The athletic testing is 1/2 mile run, pushups, sit ups, and sit and reach.
