Here is What’s Happening In Physical Education:

We are off and running in PE! Literally!

  • I am so excited to bring fitness tracking technology to our physical education classes. Grades 4-8 have all had the official introduction to our new heart rate/step sensor technology. With this new technology, students will set specific fitness goals, learn about improving their cardiovascular fitness and play tons of fun fitness games and activities.

Yours in Christ, Mrs. Garry

 Epiphany Physical Education

The physical education curriculum at Epiphany School is fitness based and has as its goal to produce physically literate individuals. This curriculum is guided by the SHAPE America National Standards which are as follows:

Standard 1: The physically literate individual demonstrates competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns.

Standard 2: The physically literate individual applies knowledge of concepts, principles, strategies and tactics related to movement and performance.

Standard 3: The physically literate individual demonstrates the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness.

Standard 4: The physically literate individual exhibits responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others.

Standard 5: The physically literate individual recognizes the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and/or social interaction.



In physical education, grades are determined on the following criteria:

1. Participation: Students are expected to participate with 100% effort level in every class activity each class period.

  **If there are special circumstances (injury, illness, etc.), students should bring a parent or doctor’s note to class explaining these circumstances.

2. Conduct/Behavior: Students are expected to follow school rules as well as the rules of the gymnasium (be respectful, be kind, be safe, follow directions, demonstrate sportsmanship).

3. Preparation: Students are expected to come to class prepared with proper PE uniforms (grades 6-8) and proper tennis shoes (all grades).

4. Knowledge/Content:  Students are expected to learn and use the content/concepts taught each class period.

8th Grade = Learn and apply the five health-related fitness components (Aerobic Endurance, Body Composition, Flexibility, Muscular Endurance and Muscular Strength)

7th Grade = Learn and apply the six skill-related fitness components (agility, balance, coordination, power, reaction time, and speed)

6th Grade = Learn and apply the FITT formula to class activities) (Frequency, Intensity, Time, and Type)

5th Grade = Learn and know the muscles of the lower body and be able to explain which muscles are working during activities.

4th Grade = Learn and know the muscles of the upper body,  and be able to explain which muscles are working during activities.

3rd Grade = Learn and know the bones of the lower body.

2nd Grade = Learn and know the bones of the upper body.

K & 1st Grades = Understand, locomotor movements and patterns (jog, run, skip, leap, hop, jump, gallop, and shuffle)

Middle school students will be given the opportunity to earn 10 points per day (Five points for participation and coming to class prepared to learn, and five points for conduct/behavior.). Students will also be given concept/content assessments once per month. Grades will be updated every two weeks so as to check your student’s progress.

Grades K-5 will be given the opportunity to earn 5 points per day and are evaluated on conduct/behavior, participation, being prepared to learn, and understanding class concepts.


The physical education program at Epiphany School will provide a developmentally appropriate and physically challenging program that will advance the knowledge, confidence, skills and motivation needed to engage in lifelong physical activities.
