The ultimate goal of the Shannon Park Physical education program is to create a learning environment that instills, promotes, and motivates students to personally value a healthy and physically active life-style.

  • Students in Grades 1-5 attend Physical Education classes for 100 minutes per cycle. They are instructed by Mrs. Lervick or Mrs. Kvittem or Ms. Fairbanks.
  • Kindergarten plus students will be instructed 50 minutes each cycle by Mrs. Lervick or Ms. Fairbanks.
  • Students will have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of planned activities in an active and safe environment.
  • These activities provide skill development, help students to be successful, develop a positive self-concept, and are enjoyable.
  • Students start out learning the Basic Skills of moving, throwing, catching, kicking, and striking. They then progress through the grades into more specific sport skills, concepts, strategies and lifetime activities.
  • Students have the opportunity to develop skills at their own pace.
  • They are also encouraged to understand the "hows" and "whys" of each.
  • All lessons and activities are success-oriented with the emphasis on self improvement and having fun.

We want our students to become moving, thinking, and feeling individuals who will be healthy and active throughout their lives.
