P.E. overview

“Commit to be Fit” is our motto in P.E. We enjoy a variety of activities that keep our students moving and having fun. Students have P.E. every other day for 45 minutes.

The goal at Beaver Technology Center is to teach students the value of leading a physically active lifestyle by allowing them to participate in a variety of activities that don't frighten or intimidate them. Students learn physical activities they can participate in over the course of their lifetime, and understand the cognitive benefits as well.

P.E. events

Fitnessgram testing for 3rd-5th graders takes place in March. We work all year long on cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and flexibility. Parents will receive a report on their child’s fitness level at the end of the school year.

Jam the Gym happens in April. It is a fun night for our families to enjoy a variety of activities together. Students love showing their parents a few of the games and activities we play in P.E.

Field Day is our end of the year FUN day in May. Students get to enjoy over 20 stations with a buddy. We have the music cranking, and many water stations in which to cool off. The best part is to see the smiles and hear the laughter of all the participants!

Dress appropriately

Please help your child be successful and safe in P.E. by ensuring that they are appropriately dressed. Your child will need to wear or bring tennis shoes on their P.E. days and wear comfortable, well-fitting clothing. Girls need to wear shorts under skirts or dresses.
