    Physical Education

    The Physical Education Curriculum at Council Rock Primary School is aligned with the New York State Standards for learning, and the AAPHERD National Standards. We believe that actively engaging our children in sufficient amounts of physical activity is critical in improving and maintain their physical health and well-being.  Our goal is to make physical education an exciting, positive, fun, challenging, and educational experience for all students. We encourage our children to apply skills and knowledge they acquire during class and to seek opportunities to be active outside of school as part of a healthy lifestyle.

    Kindergarten classes meet 1 time per cycle for 30 minutes.

    1st and 2nd grade students meet 2 times a cycle for 30 minutes.

    It is important that the children dress appropriately to participate on the cycle days that they come to Physical Educaton.  It is manditory students wear sneakers each day they have class. For comfort and safety purposes, he or she should wear athletic or running types of sneakers. 

    NO crocs, heelies, keens, sandals, flip-flop or boots. We strongly encourage students to be dressed appropriately for movement and to participate safely including wearing socks with their sneakers, and girls that choose to wear dresses or skirts should wear shorts underneath their clothing. Some classes are held outside so sweatshirts or jackets could be necessary.                                                                                  

    In order to provide the best possible experience for your child, we must all work together as a team! Please assist your child in dressing appropriately for physical activity on the days they have class.  

    Thank you,

    Council Rock PE Teachers
