“In the great work of education, our physical condition, if not the first step in point of importance, is the first in order of time. On the broad and firm foundation of health alone can the loftiest and most enduring structures of the intellect be reared.” ~Horace Mann



In order to meet physical education goals during this time students must be physically active for 60 minutes each day.

"There has been a shift in the focus of physical education instruction in the last few years. In the past, physical education was very much focused on team sports, athlete success, teacher-directed lessons, and little cognitive rigor. The new face of physical education instruction is an inclusive environment where all students have the opportunity to succeed. Physical education focuses on life-long health and wellness with connections to personal fitness, connections to lifetime activities, enhancing leadership qualities and strategic thinking, and having students take ownership of their learning. Ultimately, the standards focus on the development of physically literate students and lifelong movers." -2020 Colorado Academic Standards

All of my lessons are aligned to the Colorado State Standards. I've condensed the information for each class into lab standards.

Additionally, Excel Academy is proud to be a Healthy School and implements the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Approach (WSCC).
