Welcome to Physical Education at Church Street School!  The physical educators are dedicated to providing a safe and fun learning environment.  Our goals are to give students sport knowledge along with leadership, physical and cooperative skills and provide them with the knowledge of physical fitness in a fun and safe environment.
    Students at CSS receive Physical Education two times per cycle.  EACH STUDENT MUST WEAR SNEAKERS TO PARTICIPATE IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASS.  Each class begins with a warm-up.  The warm-up is designed to improve the student's cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, and strength.  The warm-up is usually followed by a a review of knowledge and skills.  We are now ready to begin our main lesson.
    Physical Education at CSS is divided into two levels.
    Grades K-2
    This level has an emphasis on developmental skills such as:  loco-motor movements, ball bouncing, eye-hand coordination, jump-roping and fitness.
    Grades 3-5
    This level has an emphasis on sports such as:  team handball, field hockey, basketball, gymnastics, soccer, golf, lacrosse, fitness and numerous project adventure cooperative activities.
    In addition, students in all grades are given opportunities to learn how to work together, cooperate with one another, and to be leaders.
    All lessons are designed to incorporate student learning objectives.  All units involve individual and team skill practice to see if students can successfully demonstrate that they have learned appropriate knowledge and skills.
    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our program here at Church Street.
    All the best!
