The kindergarten through grade six physical education curriculum seeks to develop basic movements and gross motor skills in each of the students.  In addition, students will become more fit while learning the importance of regular exercise, flexibility, and muscle endurance.  The middle school program will also put a heavier emphasis on creative, intellectual, and decisional goals as outlined in our CSI curriculum.  All students will learn that physical education is an important part of their lives, and a love and enjoyment of physical activities and the use of human movement is a gift from God and is a way to serve Him, others, and self.
