Physical Education represents another area of study and development in regard to body, mind and spirit. Life-long attitudes toward physical exercise, sportsmanship, healthy competition, and skill development are emphasized as a major part of the Faith P.E. program. Physical Education is taught to all classes, ECE2 through 8th grade.
ECE Physical Education
Our ECE programs has PE weekly. Activities include creative ways to develop motor skills, movement, hand and eye coordination and so much more! We work on encouragement and showing God’s love to one another in group activities and games, and have fun while learning!
TK-2nd grade Physical Education
As our students grow, we continue to work on the developmental skills needed in spacial awareness, movement, hand and eye coordination and the overall understanding of how to control our bodies. We work on many core concepts to physical education at this developmental age.
Team work and cooperation are important at this age, we work on different partner, group and team activities to build understanding of how we work together to achieve a goal and lift one another up.
3rd – 5th grade Physical Education
Our upper elementary grades continue to build on motor skills, enhancing speed, agility, coordination and power. When we are able to put all of these skills together, we get into more organized sports and games. Building the fundamentals is important. Our PE programs focuses on fostering a Christ-loving environment of healthy competition, sportsmanship and encouragement. We work together and build each other up, focusing on strengths of each individual person.
Once in third grade, our Faith physical education class also incorporates health into our curriculum. We learn that God made us in His divine order, and learning how our gifts work is a joy. We learn how our bodies function and how to keep them healthy by making good choices and taking care of ourselves through diet and exercise.
