Manhattan Lower & Middle School Physical Education Program

Students in grades 2 - 8 participate in a comprehensive physical education program where they are introduced to age appropriate physical fitness concepts and activities as well as locomotor skills to enhance coordination, balance and agility, and the acquisition of sports skills.  In every class, the physical education teachers seek to instill important life skills such as teamwork, good sportsmanship, fair play, personal achievement and a cognitive ability to strategize for competition.  In class, the students work on developing basic skills that they will then use in age appropriate lead-up games, cooperative play and scrimmages, where they will be challenged to achieve their personal best.  Students are encouraged to join the After School programs where these skills are reinforced through games, intramural and interscholastic sports.  The physical education department culminates the year with one of the great Windward traditions – Field Day.
