Physical activity helps to keep the brain and body alive and well! It also teaches us how working with others can help us as a community.
Each class will have Physical Education 2x's a week with an additional 30-minute class called Walking Program.
My curriculum is designed to help students understand their bodies, their current capabilities, and the tremendous potential for growth they have in store: physically, mentally, socially, athletically, and beyond!
All students are encouraged to thrive in positive self-talk while encouraging their classmates that they can do anything they put their minds to. It is not "I cannot," but rather "What way is best for ME to get it done."
