TORREY HILLS PHYSICAL EDUCATIONWELCOME TO THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR!
Physical Education is an essential part of the school curriculum and I am excited to assist your child this school year in learning the important fitness components including cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance and flexibility. This is even more critical today as an alarming number of children are adopting a sedentary lifestyle and lack of physical activity in their daily routine.
Physical Education promotes fitness along with motor and social skills. Being cooperative, responsible, and respecting yourself and others are as necessary for success in the classroom as they are on the playing field. Sportsmanship and leadership will be developed in PE through participation in a variety of activities and sports.
A positive attitude along with knowledge will assist your child in making healthy choices and promote a lifetime of fitness. As a parent, you can support your child by having them dress appropriately with functional clothing and athletic shoes on the day of their PE class. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
