PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASS

Mrs. Lori Loquercio

 

The Physical Education program will align with the National Standards for Physical Education established by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, and whenever possible integrate content with classroom activities and curriculum to help to develop the whole child.

The goals of PE at St. Alphonsus are threefold:

  • Introduce students to lifelong games and skills that can help them maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  • Increase strength and stamina of students through age-appropriate cardiovascular, strength and agility training.
  • Educate students in health and physical fitness to increase their understanding of the importance of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle throughout their childhood and adult life. Emphasis shall be placed on activities that engender positive behavior and enjoyable competition.
