Physical Education

Welcome to P.E.

P.E. Teachers - Ms. Jablonski and Mr. Saul

 

The purpose of physical education is to help students acquire the knowledge, processes, skills, and confidence needed to engage in meaningful physical activity both in the present and for a lifetime.  The practice of leading a physically active lifestyle will bring about personal enjoyment, challenge, satisfaction, and a health-enhancing level of personal fitness.  We challenge students to find socialization through physical activity to enhance communication and leadership skills as well.  As a result of physical education instruction, the student will be able to do the following:

 

  • Demonstrate competence in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.
  • Apply movement principles and concepts to learning and developing motor skills and specialized movement forms.
  • Achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of personal fitness.
  • Demonstrate responsible personal and social behaviors in physical activity settings.
  • Demonstrate a physically active lifestyle, including activity within and outside of the physical education setting.

 

Salem Elementary has a rich history of providing popular physical fitness activities for all students.  Here are some highlights of our program:

 

  • Golf, which involves our local chapter of The First Tee, with equipment provided through First Tee.
  • Tennis, which includes equipment provided by USTA and participation in the Chesterfield Junior Cup.
  • Fishing, which involves fishing equipment provided through a grant from The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries

o   Bike Safety, which involves learning to ride safely, wearing a helmet using signals and riding defensively.
