SW ELEMENTARY PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM
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 May and June:
Tag games emphasizing active movement
Various throwing, kicking, and striking activities
Large group games
Swimming for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade
Fitness Olympics for grades 3-5
SANDLES - Please make sure your child has sneakers for gym class. Students wearing sandles 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!
HEALTH CHALLENGE - Formerly Jump Rope for Heart, our students gathered donations totaling around $7,000 this year. Those funds go directly to the American Heart Association to aid them in their fight against heart disease and other cardiovascular illnesses. THANK YOU to all who donated to this worthy cause!!
