EDINBROOK PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Learning to be Physically Active for a Lifetime

Welcome to another year of physical education at Edinbrook Elementary School! Students attend physical education every other day for 30 minutes in grades K-6. The primary objective of our physical education program is to have fun and learn through the enjoyment of movement. Our mission is to inspire and prepare all students to lead a healthy lifestyle by providing a variety of opportunities which are designed to help children acquire the skills needed to make positive choices about a healthy, physically active way of life. Each student will have the opportunity to develop skills at his/her own pace. Socialization and character education skills are taught through partner and group activities. Instruction in healthy lifestyles will be integrated into lessons on a daily basis. Children are expected to participate in all physical education activities. We are looking forward to a fun and exciting year of learning and moving! If you have any questions, please call your child’s physical education specialist.
