PVPV/Rawlings Physical Education
|About our Program
At PVPV/Rawlings, the goal of our Physical Education program is to enhance the learning process by making the classes enjoyable as well as educational. The most important objective is for the students to understand how important physical activity (exercise) and nutrition are to maintaining an active lifestyle throughout their life. Teamwork, social skills, and sportsmanship are also heavily emphasized during each activity.
|Primary (K-2) Curriculum
In the primary classes, the curriculum is focused on motor and loco-motor skills. Coordination (eye/hand, eye/foot, etc.), balance, and teamwork are just a few of the skills students will be improving on in various games. The students also have an opportunity to practice individual skills through their “routine” activities they participate in.
|Intermediate (3-5) Curriculum
In the intermediate classes, the curriculum is focused on game skills, strategies, rules of the games, and team sports. These skills are practiced in various lead up games and activities, eventually leading the students into a structured game situation.
|President’s Fitness Challenge
For the President’s Fitness Challenge, the students are tested once a year on fitness exercises to determine how our student’s measure up to the national average, both individually and as a whole. The students have a opportunity to earn one of the following awards:Presidential Award (t-shirt and certificate)
National Award (lanyard and certificate)Students are tested on the following:
sit-ups (abdominal strength)

|Jump Rope for Heart
We do Jump Rope for Heart to teach our students to live a healthy lifestyle and for them to understand how they can help the community. We have partnered with the American Heart Association for the past 15 years to help raise money to help fight heart disease and stroke. The students have an opportunity to earn prizes for raising money while their own hearts benefit from the exercise. Over the past 16 years we have raised over $125,000 for the AHA. WAY TO GO!!!
