Physical Education, Health & Wellness

The Elementary Physical Education Program (K-5) is aligned with The Massachusetts Comprehensive Health Curriculum Frameworks & National Standards, which de-emphasizes competition, and re-emphasizes skill attainment & self-accomplishment, with every student involved at all times: physically, mentally, & socially. Students will learn the language of movement, so that they may apply basic strategies and skills to a variety of sports and wellness activities.

Physical Education News from Ms. Casey for October 2019

Hello and welcome to PE class! During our first few PE classes, we have been learning how to “boss our bodies” and move safely in our own personal space.  We have also been practicing the different shapes we can make with our bodies. Up next, we will be working on our locomotor skills and traveling in different pathways!

It is my goal to help students develop skills in all three dimensions of wellness:  physical, emotional, and social wellbeing.  At the end of each class, we will practice a different activity from the Calm Classroom curriculum, which will include deep breathing and relaxation techniques.

For your child’s safety, please remind him/her to wear sneakers on PE days!  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

I am looking forward to an exciting year of physical education at MSKC!
