Physical Education

GymAt the Graham and Parks school, our students participate in many new and exciting activities in Physical Education class. Our students will learn a variety of skills that will help build a love of exercise and enable them to pursue many forms of exercise outside of school. At the start of each class, students participate in jogging and total body fitness exercises. This will increase their fitness level and help them maintain a healthy body and mind throughout their lifetime. Along with this, students will learn fitness facts that will help increase their knowledge of health and wellness. Scientific evidence has shown that students who exercise on a regular basis do better in school. Please remember to send your child to school with sneakers on days when they have PE.
