At St. Paul's Lutheran School we believe physical education is an important part of every child's development and well-being. The main objective of our curriculum is to encourage students to live a healthy lifestyle mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Our Young 5 and Kindergarten students have P.E. once a week, while grades 1-and-up have P.E. twice a week. The classes are conducted by our P.E. Specialist, where the children do a variety of group exercise and fitness programs. P.E. is also offered as a part-time class for home-schooled students.
Beginning with students in our 2nd Grade class we offer swim lessons as a supplement to our regular P.E. program. On scheduled days, students are transported to the local YMCA to receive instruction from their certified teachers/lifeguards.
Every spring our students have an opportunity to compete against the other Christian Schools in the area, and demonstrate their physical gifts. Several hundred students perform in running, jumping, throwing, and team-based events. It is a great opportunity for social interaction and for St. Paul's to gauge the success of its athletics program.
At this time we have had to suspend our after school sports programs because we are unable to find other schools to compete against.
