Our health and fitness activities are designed to enhance our students’ physical, mental, and emotional health. Kindergarten students go Boston University Fitness & Recreation Center once per week for gym while Elementary students go to the 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
