Elementary Physical Education
PVSchools provides physical education in grades K-6 and some of our schools feature a mind-body philosophy as part of an all-school special area of emphasis. Physical education teaches students how to become fit and healthy for life, and fosters enjoyment of physical activity and healthier eating habits. Physical education also helps children become better learners. Research suggests that PE improves concentration and helps reduce stress. Learning team activities can also help students strengthen peer relationships.
For more information specific to each school, we invite you to visit or call the school and talk with your principal.
