Stevens Elementary


Physical Education

Welcome to Stevens Physical Education

Welcome to the P.E. Page!

Mission:   We work daily to help kids stay fit and enjoy being active.  We hope to help inspire a lifelong love of fitness…because active kids make better learners! Active kids also tend to feel better and make better decisions. Studies show everyone (grownups too) needs 60minutes of vigorous exercise every day to be optimally healthy. We play games that get everyone moving as much as possible, as long as possible.

Embedded in our fitness teaching is a continual focus on thesocial-emotional and safety skills necessary for a positive experiencewith health and fitness.  Students are taught that the Stevens PE way is to be SAFE (in each activity), ACTIVE (try your best), AND KIND (to yourself and others).  Students practice sportsmanship and teamworkwithin fun and challenging cooperative and competitive activities.

We teach units on frisbee, volleyball, floor hockey, biking, yoga, tennis, basketball, soccer, bike safety, heart health, nutrition, and much more. Special thanks go to the PGA First Tee organization for our golf supplies and to all the people who volunteer to help teach it.  Cascade Bike Club provides bikes and helmets for our biking unit.
