Each  of  our  Physical Education Programs  in  our  district is a nationally recognized  program that meets or exceeds National and State guidelines. Each lesson plan is divided into four parts,  each of  which has a specific purpose that promotes principles of movement, and desirable social standards and values.

1. Introductory Activity  -  Two or  three minutes of warmup activities to warm large muscle groups and get the heart pumping. 

2. Fitness Development Activity  -  Five to eight minutes of demanding activities to develop an adequate level of physical fitness - fitness values are stressed.

3. Lesson Focus Activity  -  This is the core and focus of every lesson.   The major foal and purpose of the lesson is to improve and master basic movements such as eye-hand coordination,  Body management competency,  and basic and specialized skills. Thes skills are presented in a sequential order from easiest to hardest to always ensure a level of success for every child.   This period occupies 15 to 20 minutes in two to three week units.
