Elementary Physical Education

The Physical Education Program at the elementary level provides 5 required themes which include Basic Movement, Dance & Rhythms, Manipulatives, Ball Handling and Fitness using the Fitnessgram assessments for Grades 4 & 5.  Supplemental themes include Track & Field, Climbing Wall, Orienteering, and Hoops to name a few.


Fitnessgram is a comprehensive fitness assessment battery for youth.  It includes a variety of health-related physical fitness tests designed to assess cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition.

Fitnessgram is also a report card that summarizes the child’s performance on each component of health-related fitness.  Fitnessgram can be used by students, teachers, and parents.  Students can use Fitnessgram in planning their personal fitness program; teachers can use it to determine students needs and help guide students in program planning; and parents can use it to help them understand their child’s needs and help the child plan a program of physical activity.

Differentiating instruction means changing the pace, level, or kind of instruction you provide in response to individual learners’ needs, styles, or interests.

Rigor – challenging instruction to motivate students to push themselves.

Relevant – focusing on essential learning

Flexible and Varied – where appropriate, students make choices about how they will learn and how they will show what they’ve learned.

Complex – challenge students’ thinking and actively engage them in content that conveys depth and breadth.
