Physical Education

Team Play with Coach K


Class with Coach K

A quality physical education program allows students to learn a variety of important life skills which include movement skills, knowledge, and behavior/social skills, over the course of each school year. Some of these include: locomotor, non-locomotor, and manipulative skills, team-building, social interaction skills, and cognitive concepts linked to fitness, wellness, skill development, and social skills appropriate to each grade/developmental level. I want all students to be competent in a variety of fundamental motor skills, because these skills enhance everyday living. The acquisition of fundamental motor skills are essential to improving ones overall fitness and key in leading an enjoyable active lifestyle. Moreover, I want all students to develop an understanding of the importance of lifelong fitness and skill building concepts. It is important that we instill healthy living and activity knowledge, skills, and disposition at a young age in an attempt to impact positive lifestyle choices and patterns for the long term."


"I believe that classes should be based on activities that promote fun and more importantly, learning. By participating in a variety of enjoyable physical activities, my mission is to help students discover the benefits and strength of living a healthy and active lifestyle. All students should be able to use their physical education class to develop a sense of creativity, imagination, and unique expression. In doing so, they will be able to develop individuality and use their time in the physical education setting to grow as an individual."
