Physical Education supports you in acquiring skills through a variety of developmentally appropriate movement activities. You will gain experience within various physical activities assisting you in further understanding health and wellness benefits, promoting positive interactions and leading an active lifestyle.
Please remember that changing is the expectation at Dr. Egbert. We need everyone to keep your participation mark high by changing into appropriate attire.
- wear shorts/sweat pants, t-shirt
- remove all jewelry…hair ties for long hair please
- running shoes
Remember that wearing clothing that can “pass” for a gym uniform is not acceptable…there are hygiene issues that arise from sitting in the same clothes for the rest of the day after Physical Education. For more clarification, please talk to your Physical Education teacher.
Fundamental Movement Skills
The development of fundamental movement skills and motor skills is critical to establishing the foundation for participation in many sports and physical activities. A child who has not had the opportunity to develop these basic motor skills experiences difficulties or barriers when participating in sport experiences or later school-based programs that involve more difficult skills.
