Physical Education

A well rounded program of rhythms, gymnastics, games and physical fitness characterizes our physical education program. It provides sequential developmental experiences based on the student's abilities and needs.  Activities are designed to develop body fitness and attitudes of fairness and sportsmanship.  The physical education Standards of  Learning are incorporated into the curriculum for this area of learning.  Students in grades kindergarten through 4th grade receive sixty minutes of instruction two times per week. Pre-school receives twenty-five minutes twice a week.  A written note from parents is needed in order to be excused from physical education.  If a student needs to be excused or have activities limited for more than 3 days, a note from the doctor is needed.  Tennis shoes and appropriate clothing is required of all students.
