The goal of our Physical Education Department is to ensure all our students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain a healthy life style. We use a program that stresses cooperation and team building, in a non-competitive setting.
In order to meet the developmental needs of all our students, our school utilizes the SPARK physical education program. SPARK provides a research and standards based physical education curriculum for both elementary and middle school students.
SPARK is Sports, Play, And Recreation for Kids. It is a highly active Physical Education program that provides students with activities to strengthen skills and build stamina. They learn and play with hula hoops, jump ropes, beanbags, and balls of different sizes and textures to improve hand-eye coordination, throwing, catching, dribbling, trapping, and more. The program includes fun games and exercises, such as juggling, stretching, balancing, dancing, and parachute games.
