The purpose of Physical Education is to teach the skills of sports and fitness. It is however, more important to instruct how to maintain an enjoyably active lifestyle, one that promotes good health into adulthood teaching one to stay active throughout your life time. This is the basis of Physical Education at BCS.
Assessments of individual skills are done at the beginning of the school year and again at the end using criteria from the Presidential fitness awards program. This is done solely as a measuring stick to see where individuals’ strengths and weaknesses lie. The curriculum is coordinated with ongoing sports programs striving to work with the coaches to be productive to the sport.
Elementary Students grades 1-6
Students in early grades (1-4) are instructed in the fundamentals of motor skills, hand-eye coordination, balance and basic sports.
Students in higher grades (5-6) are taught more rules and knowledge of the individual sports. The depth of instruction is increased as the grade level increases.
Personal best is always encouraged, but team play is emphasized overall along with striving to promote an attitude of encouragement to each other. The goals stated above are obtained through creative play and personal instruction.
