Physical Education at HES
Mr. Jenkins Mrs. Rutz
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.
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.
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
We look forward to having a fun year with your children.
