• Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.

    — John F. Kennedy

    We believe, athletics teach skills and provide valuable experiences that cannot be replicated in other areas of school life.  Physical education prepares children to be physically and mentally active, fit and healthy…for life. In addition to the positive health effects, physical education aides in motor skill development, facilitates self-discipline and student responsibility for health, develops leadership and cooperative learning skills, strengthens peer relationships, improves self-confidence and improves academics.

  • The purpose of the elementary and middle school physical education program is to develop and enhance each student physically, socially, and emotionally. The physical education curriculum includes a variety of individual and team sports, fitness, dance, and cooperative team-building activities. We provide students will regular, healthful physical activity two times per week with our qualified coaches.

    Coach Yamon Figurs, a former, professional NFL wide receiver directs our Physical Education Program for grades 5-8. This summer Coach Figurs is busy training as a member of the US Olympic Rugby Team! Students are put in a competitive and challenging, yet safe and healthy, environment in order to enhance their skills. Every student is encouraged to challenge themselves and reach new levels of physical fitness and acquire new sport skills.
