    SW ELEMENTARY PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM
     
    MISSION STATEMENT
    Here at Southwestern Elementary School, we provide a safe and inviting environment for all students. PE skills are taught for all learning abilities. During the school year, our Physical Education program offers many different activities including fitness awareness, pool skills, personal safety, nutrition and exercise based lessons. We also emphasize character development - proper manners, being a good friend and partner, good sportsmanship, and respecting the skills and attributes of all students, faculty, and staff.
     
     
     
     
    ACTIVITIES - Our goal is for our students to be physically active while at the same time learning the skills needed to successfully participate in all of our activities. Here are some of the activities for January and February:
     
    Tag games emphasizing active movement
    Team Handball
    Speedball
    Various throwing, kicking, and striking activities
    Fitness activities
    Large group games
    Basketball
    Relay Races
    Bucket stacking
    Activity Stations
    Cup stacking
    Parachute
    Swimming for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade
     
     
     
     
    BOOTS - Please make sure your child has sneakers for gym class. Students wearing boots will not be allowed to participate in PE class. This is a safety issue. Make sure your child has sneakers either in their school locker or in their backpack.  THANK YOU!
     
     
    PARENT'S NIGHT OUT - Our 8th annual Parents Night Out that was held on Friday, December 7 was a rousing success. We had around 90 students that attended! Students swam, played games in the gym and cafeteria, ate pizza, and prizes were awarded. Thank you PTO for helping to make this event a success! Students can look forward to our 2nd annual kickball tournament in June.
