Physical Education & Health
The goal in elementary P.E. and health is to encourage kids to be physically active, develop an enjoyment for exercise, stimulate their minds, and start healthy habits from a young age. P.E. classes are usually structured around a “word of the week,” which introduces students to key vocabulary and weaves important themes throughout their activities. In health class, students learn about concepts such as self-esteem, compassion, puberty, the skeletal and endocrine systems, stress management, mindfulness and more.
