Welcome to Physical Education and Health!
The students here at St. Cecilia from kindergarten to 8th grade have physical education classes twice a week throughout the school year. Kindergarten through 2nd grade work on developmental skills such as locomotor, balance and hand/eye coordination. Grades 3-5 participate in a variety of activities along with developing the same skills. We expand into playing sports like soccer, hockey and badminton. In addition to working on locomotor developmental skills, the middle school participates in activities such as volleyball, fitness testing, hockey and badminton.
In preschool through second grade, health topics are taught by their homeroom teacher. The health curriculum for grades 3-8 is taught by our specialist, with grade appropriate topics and activities. Some of the items that are discussed are body systems, nutrition, and diseases. An emphasis is placed on staying healthy and active throughout life.
