The following examples of enduring understandings and essential questions will guide students toward successful levels of achievement of our Physical Education benchmarks.
- Having spacial awareness is essential for safe and efficient movement in all aspects of life.
- People who continue to participate in regular physical activity are more likely to do so because they feel comfortable and competent in movement skills.
- Manipulative and locomotor skills transfer to use in occupational and life settings. Regular participation in these activities has life-long benefits.
- How does my use of movement concepts influence that of others?
- What do the words "physically fit" and "in shape" mean? Why is it important in life to be physically fit?

As a K-5 PE Department, we want to:
- encourage regular participation in physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle.
- develop techniques to participate in and an appreciation for fitness-related skills.
- teach movement skills and sports-related skills to become confident participants in any sport or activity.
- enrich the lives of our students as they learn cooperation, sportsmanship, giving to others, and what it means to be a part of a community.
