Physical Education Department

Meet our team!

 

Welcome  to the Stratford Landing Elementary School Physical Education Department

Our goal in the Physical Education Department is to provide an environment where each and every student feels a sense of belongingness; where students feel safe to challenge themselves as they build self-confidence while focusing on cooperation, fair play, and responsible participation in physical activity.

We follow the school-wide Responsive Classroom approach and firmly believe that the social and emotional curriculum is as important as the academic curriculum.

We emphasize knowledge and skills for a lifetime of physical activity where we meet the needs of ALL of our students, regardless of athletic ability or experience.

We teach self-management skills, such as goal-setting and self- monitoring and feature cooperative, as well as competitive games.  However, success is not measured by the final score of a particular game, but instead by each student’s improvement and interaction with peers.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly… students should LOVE coming to Physical Education class.  We are building a culture of caring students who have fun and enjoy the time spent in our class.  We welcome parents to join their child in our class; either as a spectator, or even better… as an active participant.

Good health & good fun!
