Our health and fitness activities are designed to enhance our students’ physical, mental, and emotional health. Kindergarten students travel to Boston University's Fitness & Recreation Center once per week for gym while Elementary students go twice weekly, for swimming lessons and gym. Upper Elementary students participate in rock climbing, racquet sports, and hip-hop dancing. In the spring, all Elementary students participate in a Sports Field Day on the Boston Common and Kindergarten students participate in the Kindergarten Marathon.
The goals of the Elementary Physical Education Curriculum are to:
Promote physical activity as an important part of living a healthy lifestyle
Provide a variety of activities that develop skills in coordination, fitness, movement, and social interaction
Foster a learning environment that is positive, fun, challenging, and where students feel comfortable taking healthy risks
Provide equipment that encourages age-appropriate skill development and active participation
