The 1-6 Physical Education program at Hillcrest Elementary is an integral part of the total education experience. The specific and unique function of Physical Education is the development of physically, mentally, emotionally and socially fit students through the medium of physical activity. A well-balanced program should offer students the opportunity to develop an acceptable level of fitness, a broad spectrum of physical skills,and the knowledge necessary to use these skills and maintain fitness for a lifetime of active participation.
Our daily lesson plan is broken down into three major areas. In each of these areas we include activities that develop skills and concentrate on elements that coincide with each other.
If students cannot participate for a medical reason, a note from home will excuse him/her for that day. A doctor’s note is required if the student is to be excused for a period longer than a week. Students may be required to participate in class in an inactive capacity. Please make sure that the excuse has the student’s first and last name, date(s) to be excused, and reason for excuse.
