Fundamental to every student’s development is the ability to become physically fit, develop motor skills, gain knowledge and understanding, develop appropriate social awareness and behavior, and achieve life-time physical well-being.
At Wesley Prep, students have supervised P.E. instruction three-four or five days a week, depending on grade level, with a certified physical education instructor as we believe that physical education is an integral part of each student’s day. Our program is designed to motivate students by providing activities that differentiate by skill levels so all students can experience success and develop confidence in themselves. We believe that when a child feels good about his physical development and has a good self-concept, then he will be more inclined to perform better in the classroom and in all other phases of life. An adequate physical education program should include a variety of activities that provide the student with skills and confidence that have a positive lasting effect.
In addition to physical exercise, we believe that healthy habits start early and all elementary students are also encouraged to keep a water bottle on their desks throughout the day for hydration and health.
