Physical Education

Physical Education Department Information

Our Staff believes that all students can achieve excellence regardless of size, coordination, body type or other physical capabilities. We are concerned with developing a child's positive attitude towards physical activity that will last a lifetime. We have aligned our physical education lessons with the California Content Standards for Physical Education. This will ensure that students will be exposed to a broad range of activities that can provide the foundation for a healthy and active lifestyle.

These students will still be required to suit up for PE however, they will not be required to participate.
