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 March, 2020

In our PE classes we have been working on the skills of striking and volleying. We began using balloons, and then progressed to using paddles and light weight balls. We also practiced balancing a bean bag with our paddles. Up next is our balancing and transferring weight unit!

Thank you to all those who participated in February’s Healthy Heart Month, by bringing in a photo for our bulletin board. The board looks fabulous! During the month of March, our health topic will focus on nutrition. We will be discussing healthy snacks and playing some nutrition focused activity games.

Please remind your child to wear (or bring) sneakers on PE days. 

Thank you,

Caitlinn Casey, Physical Education and Wellness Teacher
