Students in grades 1-6 receive 45 minutes of physical education once or twice per week. Students participate in 10 minutes of physical activity within the classroom when not scheduled with the PE teacher. In grades 7 and 8, students participate daily for 45 minutes of PE, except for one quarter, when they receive health instruction. We teach the Illinois state goals: to acquire movement skills and understand concepts needed to engage in health-enhancing physical activity; to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical fitness based upon continual self-assessment; and to develop team-building skills by working with others through physical activity.
