The mission of the Ashwaubenon Physical Education Department is to promote health, physical fitness and wellness from kindergarten through the high school years using a variety of age-appropriate activities.
Physical Education contributes to the total growth of the child through movement experiences and physical activity.
Kindergarten Physical Education
Your child will have PE for 3, 30-minute classes per week. During this time they will participate in age-appropriate activities that often integrate what they are learning in the classroom with physical activity. Colors, numbers, shapes, patterns will be put into action!
Activities Include:The physical skills they learn this year include locomotor skills (run, gallop, skip, hop, etc.), body awareness, cooperative games, ball and striking skills, and low-organized games. Physical education class is also a great opportunity to work on the social skills, such as following directions, working with others and taking turns.
For your child’s safety, each student is required to wear gym shoes or tennis shoes for physical education. If your child wears open-toes (sandals) or dress shoes to school, please pack a pair of gym shoes on their PE day to change into or keep a spare pair in their locker.
Feel free to observe or join in a class at any time.
