Our physical education program in the Lower School is designed to develop and strengthen the physical, social, and emotional needs of children through involvement in athletic activities. It encourages students to participate in and enjoy a variety of team sports such as soccer and basketball as well as other fitness activities and cooperative games. Students are introduced to skills through practice exercises and games to offer a better understanding of a particular sport.
Sportsmanship and teamwork are emphasized as core competencies in physical education. Even more important than the mastery of any specific athletic skill is the manner in which we conduct ourselves on the field or court. P.E. is used as an opportunity for growth and development of and focus on how we play over how well we do.
