Newman Physical Education ...building skillful movers for today, tomorrow, and for a lifetime!
Welcome to Physical Education at the Newman Elementary School!
At Newman, we follow a skill themes and movement concepts approach - meaning, our main goal is to teach our students to become skillful movers who are able to participate in a variety of physical activities throughout their lifetime! Skills and lead-up games utilizing small groups with greater student participation serve as the foundation in our program. Skills taught and practiced are presented through games, dance, and gymnastics activities. Wellness and fitness concepts are continually woven into the curriculum/activities throughout the year. It is our hope that students will use the skills and concepts that they learn and practice in PE class in order to keep them active for at least 60 minutes per day!
This year we are excited to welcome Fiona Stickney, wellness teacher from Pollard Middle School, to Newman. Ms. Stickney will be teaching our kindergarten PE classes this year.
Please note that for safety and comfort, children are expected to wear sneakers and "good moving clothes" on PE days. Please click on the "schedule" page to find your child's PE day(s)! * Note: All students in grade K-5 students have PE twice a week for 40 minutes.
Yours in Wellness, Ms. Smith, Ms. Hone, and Ms. Stickney
