Elementary School Physical Education
Granada Islamic School takes pride in creating a fun, engaging, and safe physical education experience. The focus of the elementary physical education curriculum is Teamwork and Collaboration. Student success is achievable if students come to each and every class ready to participate, communicate to everyone in a positive manner, give it their best in every attempt they make, and keep the environment safe and fun for all of their classmates.
Students will be participating in physical education twice per week. These classes will consist of physical activities that address fitness, motor performance, and cognitive learning. Students will develop physical, mental, and social skills crucial for a child's development.
