Philosophy:

Students will be given the necessary knowledge of physical fitness principles, skill development, and wellness components to make healthy lifelong decisions.

Description :

  • Physical Education is based on the development of the mind and body. Educational objectives are reached through participating in mental and physical activity. In the Physical Education classroom, students build their knowledge and level of physical fitness, explore and learn a wide variety of neuro-muscular skills, and develop responsible social behaviors that promote personal and group success. Written work and reading assignments provide for the integration of academic skills and present an opportunity for traditional cognitive challenges.
  • Each class includes fitness components, skill development, proper use and care of equipment, rules, strategies, and etiquette. The emphasis is directed towards lifetime participation and fitness.
  • Physical Education curriculum follows the guidelines stated in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards for Health and Physical Education.
  • One marking period or quarter per year in Middle School, students will attend health class instead of physical education.

RIGHT NOW IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION...

Jump Rope for Heart was a successful and fun event! Thank you to all the parents who came to help turn the rope. Grades Kindergarten through 5 th completed over 100,000 jumps all together in one day! Thanks to everyone who donated to the American Heart Association and joined the Scare Squad. We raised over $7,000 for a great cause. The prizes will be arriving sometime in April.

Middle school students are participating in a fitness unit. Each day the students will learn new exercises and the benefits of each exercise to their everyday lives.

The Elementary school students and 6 th grade are participating in the Gymnastics unit. Students will perform beginner to intermediate gymnastic exercises along with fitness exercises to improve their muscular strength, endurance and flexibility.

Both middle and elementary school students will be given the Fitnessgram fitness assessment toward the end of March and beginning of April.
