Physical Education at BPES

Physical education at Battlefield Park Elementary School provides students opportunities to learn basic manipulative and movement principles. These instructional activities promote an active lifestyle. Students participate in a range of activities that promote physical, mental, emotional, and social growth, shaping them into more influential members of the community. At BPES, we challenge students to focus on being team players through communication and teamwork and encourage them to find solutions using the problem-solving model.

To encourage healthy lifestyle choices and healthy living, we introduce students to basic health principles. Most importantly, students actively engage in movement throughout the class. Students must wear appropriate footwear and clothing to ensure a safe learning environment for all students.
