Children on all grade levels
receive instruction in physical education once in a 6-day cycle. The New
York State Standards on Physical Education are used as a guide. The
program includes strategies and activities that emphasize gross motor
and manipulative skills and body management, the development of
specialized sport skills that can be used for recreation, the practice
of basic conditioning concepts for physical fitness, and activities that
emphasize the importance of healthy competition and good sportsmanship.
Each year, the students in grades 6-8 participate in The Presidents Challenge Physical Fitness Test.
