Our fifth grade crew began the year ready to move, collaborate, and compete. With the addition of Jade Morris, associate director of athletics, to the physical education and athletics department, they are in good hands and ready to roll. John O’Neill, director of athletics, and Ms. Morris are collaborating this year to provide PE time that allows for skill work in smaller groups while also offering the chance for whole-group games.

The fifth grade physical education curriculum mirrors the middle school athletics seasonally so that students will be better prepared to commit to a sport when they enter middle school. Thus they began this year with field hockey, learning how to stick handle, pass, move as a team, and shoot. They culminated with a fifth grade scrimmage, and all reports indicate that it was a rousing start to what is sure to be a thrilling year in PE.
