EES Physical Education Philosophy


Our main goal in physical education is to help motivate our students to be physically active throughout their lives. Physical activity is essential to the development and maintenance of health and well-being. We believe it’s critical to expose our students to a wide variety of movement skills, providing many opportunities for students to learn and develop during their elementary school years. Physical education classes are designed to promote the physical, social/emotional and cognitive domains of every child. Physically educated individuals have the skills, knowledge and confidence to enjoy and benefit from a lifetime of healthy physical activity!
