Green Elementary is a Physical Education school as well as a school that focuses on Academics. Every Green Elementary School student has the ability to increase their self-confidence, and therefore improve their physical and cognitive performances through organized physical education focusing on individual, paired and small group activities emphasizing personal best and team building.
Physical Education at Green Elementary encompasses a multitude of activities allowing all children to become skilled and fit and occurs throughout the day with regular PE classes, structured morning and lunch recess, and other activities throughout the year. Our PE program does not focus on competition, but instead on building skill, flexibility, coordination, and confidence. Activities include running, gymnastics, skills in sports, dance, and ongoing skilled activities.
Our emphasis on teaching our students to be physically active, increases their ability to remain focused in the classroom and absorb the rigorous instruction and phenomenal teaching. This combination of physical activity and academics has resulted in successful student achievement and high API scores with a lot of fun of learning with the family of Green!
