Here is What’s Happening In Physical Education:

Middle School – The middle school students are in the midst of a “Fitness Tracker Throw down”. All MS classes are working together to track the most steps, points and miles during PE class until Christmas. Here is the leader board:

Class Steps Points Miles
7B 12532 376 5.98
6 Girls 12008 382 5.68
6 Boys 11838 360 5.60
7A 11459 360 5.42
8A 11425 326 5.42

Middle School Students are also beginning a striking unit leading up to the game of Pickleball. Learning Objective = The student will be able to strike an object with a short handled implement sending it over the net using mature pattern of skills

4th – 5th Grades are in the midst of their striking unit as well. They will use their learned striking skills in the game of Badminton.

2nd-3rd Grades are learning striking skills . They will use these skills in the game of Nitroball (a lead up game to volleyball).

K-1 is working on locomotor skills (skip, gallop, leap, run, walk, side shuffle) and  changing pathways in these movements.They will further use physical movement to explore shape and color recognition. Striking skills are also being introduced.

 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/Minnesota Benchmarks 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.
