For St. Mark’s Pre-Kindergarten and kindergarten students, PE is used to help develop their motor and loco-motor skills such as kicking, throwing, dodging, dribbling, and jumping. These skills are introduced to children through fun and exciting games and play time.
Students in first and second grades improve these skills using a variety of equipment such as jump ropes, hoops, balls, cones, hurdles, parachutes, scooter boards, and much more.
Our third through sixth grade students begin to use these skills in the learning of sports and sporting activities. Students will learn the rules and concepts to a variety of games such as soccer, flag-football, hockey, golf, basketball, and overall physical fitness.
PE also incorporates team building skills to promote socialization, sportsmanship, and cooperative learning.
