Physical Education

St. John Bosco Catholic School uses the Dynamic Physical Education curriculum and incorporates Physical Best in our lessons. The DPE program exposes children to a wide variety of activities in a process rather than product oriented format.

We are honored to have Brett Caradonna as our Certified Physical Education teacher. Endurance is the Gospel Value chosen by the PE department to emphasize in the P.E. curriculum.
