Welcome to the New Kent Elementary School Health & Physical Education website!
Students at NKES receive Physical Education 2x's per week. Our goal is to develop students who are physically literate through skill development, positive encouragement and practice. Our program focuses upon developing the knowledge, attitudes, values, and skills needed to adopt and sustain a healthy life style.
