    Hello Parents and Students,

                Thank you for finding Paloma Elementary Physical Education on our website!

    Physical Education at Paloma exists to teach our students to do the following:

    1)     Value physical activity and can begin a path towards lifelong fitness.

    2)     Perform skills that allow them many opportunities to enjoy being active.

    3)     Demonstrate knowledge of fitness concepts, basic physiology (heart, lungs,muscles) and sports.

    4)     Exhibit a team-first mentality by making each other successful in cooperative games and activities.

    Research shows that motor skill development is tied to neural development, and that children who learn a variety of movement skills perform better in the classroom.  Therefore students are making their education more complete by engaging in quality physical education… in addition to having tons of fun!
