Welcome to Mr. Lierman's and Mr. Lettenmaier's Web Page

Our Program Goals

Our overall goal in our P.E. programs is to encourage students to enjoy physical activity, build confidence, and develop habits that will keep them healthy throughout their lives. In other words, we focus on developing their Physical Literacy.

What is Physical Literacy?

Physical literacy is the ability to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person. It is the development of basic physical skills, playing well with others, and making good, healthy choices. By building their physical literacy, they will develop a large toolbox of skills which will give them confidence to try many activities, games, and/or sports. Couple that with knowing how to make good choices about their health, students will live active, healthy lifestyles for years to come.

Research has shown that being physically active later in life depends on an individual's ability to feel confident in an activity setting. That confidence most often comes from having learned fundamental movement and sport skills, or physical literacy, as a child.

P.E. teachers are just a part of the child's physical literacy team. It also includes parent, coaches, friends, and more. We all play a big role in helping children build the skills and confidence to live active, healthy lifestyles.
