"Physical education provides cognitive content and instruction designed to develop motor skills, knowledge, and behaviors for physical activity and physical fitness." (CDC.gov) At MELA Charter school, every student receives 30 minutes of physical education and 30 minutes of recess every day. Read more to learn what this looks like at our elementary school!
Students describe the Physical Education classes as being fun and non-threatening. I'm fortunate to work with all of the students at MELA, and each grade is developmentally different from the others.
This has been an amazing school year and I feel very fortunate to have helped my students' growth, confidence, and skills in Physical Education!
