Physical Education

Pre-K Physical Education

 In Pre-K P.E. we will focus on becoming comfortable in the gym, enjoying play and being safe.  Pre-K P.E. will meet once a week.

Kindergarten – 2nd Grade Physical Education Curriculum

In the primary grades physical education instruction is focused on the fundamental concepts of loco-motor movements, body and spatial awareness, sportsmanship, and safe play.  These concepts are taught through a series of warm-up activities and games that incorporate these concepts, and group activities that reinforce these fundamentals.  Becoming comfortable in the physical education environment and enjoying play is a major part of the program.  Primary students will have P.E. twice a week.

3rd Grade – 5th Grade Physical Eduction Curriculum

In the intermediate grades, physical education instruction focuses on refining loco-motor and dance movements, basic sports skills, sportsmanship and fair play.  These concepts are taught through a variety of group games and activities.  The love of play and enjoying fitness is an important part of the program.  Third through Fifth graders have P.E. twice a week.

Middle School Physical Education Curriculum

The goal of the middle school physical education program is to introduce students to concepts and skills they can carry through life.  We will accomplish this by exposing students to many individual, dual, and team experiences throughout the year. These experiences will be creative non-threatening small group drills, modified games and all active delivery systems. ASB PE aims to recognize that everyone is unique in their abilities.  Students are assessed on their effort toward personal growth and excellence.  Students should focus on positive participation, sportsmanship and class daily learning targets.
