Physical Education at HES 

Jenkins Rutz

Mr. Jenkins           Mrs. Rutz

Physical Education is an important part of your child's total development. It is a critical component of the educational process through which students can develop healthy minds and bodies while participating in various movement activities. During your child's years at Hillsborough Elementary School a positive attitude and appreciation will be developed for physical activity. Students will increase their levels of endurance, hand-eye coordination, balance, agility, strength and flexibility throughout their years at HES. Students will also understand and practice good sportsmanship while participating in all activities.

During the year your child will be participating in various activities such as cooperative games, movement activities, sport specific activities, Jump Rope for Heart, and line dancing among others. They will also be participating in various health lessons. They will learn about the people in their community, how to treat others, the skeleton, the heart, emergency information, safety information and much more.

T.P. through 4th grade have physical education class two times per cycle for forty minutes. Kindergarten has class once a cycle for 30 minutes. On the days they have gym class students should wear comfortable attire and sneakers. They should not wear baggy pants. If students do not wear sneakers on gym day they will not be able to participate in class activities.

 We look forward to having a fun year with your children.

Thank you,

Sarina Rutz & Jason Jenkins
