Physical Education

Choose Another Sport


 My name is Cal Sligh and I am very excited about the new school year.  The Leader in Me process helps develop the essential life skills and characteristics students need in order to thrive in the 21st century.  It is hard to believe that a new school year is already upon us.  We will be offering a variety of activities, ranging from cooperative activities, skills, general activity games, dance, sports, and sports lead-up games.  We will also discuss health items such as the skeletal system, muscular system, integumentary system, sensory system, food pyramid, cardio vascular endurance, muscular endurance, body composition, cardio respiratory endurance and many more.


     The physical education philosophy at Silverdale is three fold.  First, we provide a wide variety of activities to broaden our students' involvement in activities that they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.  We attempt to teach a healthy and active way-of-life.  Second, we want our students to have fun.  By having fun, our student will hopefully seek out activities that will prompt them to continue to pursue physical activities as a way to become healthier, more physically fit and have a positive way to release stress.  Third, our goal is to help provide students with discipline that will help promote not only fitness, but will get them to recognize good sportsmanship, courtesy to one another and a willingness to help one another become better participants.   The three fold philosophy produces a win-win situation for everyone involved, the parents, the staff and the students.   


     Safety is one of our top priorities.  We make safety a primary factor in each activity that we teach and try to teach each student to be observant of safety considerations whenever they are participating in physical activities.  As a safety precaution, we require all students to wear shoes designed for physical activity; i.e., sneakers, court shoes, aerobic  shoes, etc...(shoes must be closed in on the heels and across the top of the foot to provide the support needed for safety).   The use of shoes not designed for physical activity is not only dangerous for your child, but can be harmful for other children; especially when playing games like soccer.  Your child will have physical education once every four day (If they are in any of the P.E. Clubs in the afternoon they will also be required to wear proper tennis shoes).  Please become familiar with your child's P.E. day so you can help remind them to wear their P.E. shoes or carry and change into them on P.E. days.  Your help is greatly appreciated.


     We welcome back everyone from what we hope was a fun filled and physically active Summer.
