Physical Education

The district shall provide physical education classes for all students as required by Vermont School Quality Standards.

The district shall provide other physical activity opportunities for students through recess periods in appropriate grades and, as appropriate, before or after school activities such as interscholastic athletics and physical activity clubs or intramural sports.

Physical education is taught to every child twice a week either in the MPR or outside, weather permitting. It is important for students to wear athletic sneakers on PE days so that each child can participate comfortably and safely. Emphasis is placed on developing a broad foundation of motor skills for all students through curriculum while fostering respect and responsibility for others and self through instruction. Students at this level find time for experimentation, practice, and decision making about all movement possibilities. The development of personal health and fitness habits also begin during the elementary years focusing on concepts of human wellness, lifetime activity and personal habits.
