Physical Education

Pre-K Curriculum Overview

 

Administered primarily in free-­roam stations, the Pre-K program promotes body management and serves as an introduction to athletic movement. Stations coincide with the monthly theme and promote motor skills development. Individual attention is given to meet different physical, social, and cognitive needs.

 

K–5 Curriculum Overview

 

Each month entails a new sport (theme). Each unit plan progresses through a building-­blocks approach in which student’s perform sport-­specific movements and drills that develop competency and instill confidence. All classes begin with a dynamic movement series. Each month concludes with game play. Difficulty and intensity progresses with age and ability level of the cumulative group while providing for opportunities to individualize skill development.
