Physical Education


Middle School:

This program is designed to help students grow and develop physically, socially, and emotionally. Collaboration and sportsmanship are emphasized in traditional and nontraditional games and activities. The goal of the OLL Middle School PE program is to help students develop a positive attitude toward physical activity that leads them to adopt a lifelong healthy, active lifestyle, along with recognizing that everyone is unique in their abilities. Play, sports, and games become vehicles to teach students important life skills about teamwork, competition, and ethical behavior.

PS-5th Grade:

Physical Education is an essential part of developing the whole child. In order to teach our children how to lead a healthy life we must educate them at a young age so they understand the importance of this concept and develop a lifestyle not only of fitness but positive self esteem as well. Studies have shown that people who are healthy feel good about who they are and therefore tend to be more successful throughout life.
Students in PE class here at OLL will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain an active life through a variety of activities using movement, spatial awareness, physical fitness, cooperation, safe play and sportsmanship. We use SHAPE America's National Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education to define what a student should know and be able to do as a result of a highly effective physical education program. 


Students in K - 8 complete the fitness gram test twice a year in the fall and spring.
