Aim of our Program:
The aim of the physical education program at Livingston Park Elementary School is to develop and improve students personal fitness
and motor skills by providing developmentally appropriate activities through purposeful, creative, and enjoyable instruction. By incorporating challenging yet achievable tasks, the students can attain positive attitudes about physical activity and movement.
 
We want you to be successful! :
To help promote success in our students skills and abilities, the physical education teachers here at Livingston Park concentrate on a number of factors in instruction that include repetition, creativity, challenge, fun, recognition, and cognitive thought. An attempt to integrate classroom concepts in the physical education setting is utilized.
 
Outcomes:
Several outcomes from the instructional units presented to the students in physical education at Livingston Park are expected. They include:
  • expression and creativity
  • body awareness
  • increased fitness levels
  • improved motor, social and emotional skills
  •     self-confidence and positive self-esteem through successful physical activities
              • demonstrate cooperation, fair play, and safety
Many of these outcomes stem from the opinion that students learn best when they are 'doing' rather than 'watching.'  With dedication, enthusiasm, and a positive attitude toward physical activity, there is a clear belief that these outcomes can be achieved.
