Physical Education

Physical Education is an important part of your child's educational program. Children in grades K-8 receive Physical Education instruction once a week. A doctor's note is required for a child to be excused because of injury or illness. A student must have the necessary gym clothes in order to participate in the class. If a student does not have an excused absence or proper clothes a zero will be given for that day.

Our physical education program includes the President’s Physical Fitness program. There are many required elements, including being able to run a mile within an age-appropriate time-frame. Please discuss with your child what it might feel like to become “winded” vs. what it might feel like to experience asthma or similar health conditions.
