At CLCS, we believe that physical fitness is related to academic alertness and emotional wellness. Our Physical Education classes give students ample opportunity to engage in healthy physical activity and to see how fitness is a vital part of self-care.
Learning is focused on the development of skills and a positive attitude. Students learn to encourage and respect one another while following instructions in a fun and positive environment. Whenever possible, we integrate math, basic Spanish, and unit studies with Physical Education to enhance classroom learning.
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” -Nelson Mandela
Physical Education across the grades
Our K-4th grade students participate in activities and games designed to develop motor skills, hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness, support and balance, and rhythms in preparation for learning organized games. Our 5th-8th grade students learn to play organized games such as soccer, lacrosse, floor hockey, volleyball, and Ultimate Frisbee.
