Certified Teacher: Mr. Gregg Buchanan, B.A. Ed
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. Physical Best activities help students learn the “why” of physical fitness and activities. Our program objectives include:
- Movement Concepts, Safe Practices, and Fundamental Skills
- Physical Fitness
- Interpersonal Skills & Diversity
- Lifetime Physical Activity
- Sports – Team, Individual, Lifetime
Each PE class consists of 35- 50 minutes of instruction and starting in 3rd grade the classes are divided by gender.
- Intro Activity (3-5 Minutes)
- Fitness Development (10-12 minutes)
- Lesson Focus (20-25 minutes)
- Game (10-12 minutes)
Endurance is the Gospel Value chosen by the PE department to emphasize in the P.E. curriculum.
