K-3 Physical Education

Physical education in kindergarten is the beginning of a process. At the beginning of their first year at High Point, the kindergarten students still have one foot in preschool and have not had a formal physical education class. In kindergarten to second grade, physical education class is a combination of stretching, running, and skill practice of well-thought-out and proven scope and sequence that corre­sponds to a specific unit of the master physical education calendar for the year (based largely on the Com­prehensive Elementary Physical Education Program by Craig Cunningham and Don Morris). It is a dy­namic curriculum that works, and produces positive results. Physical education in third grade continues the stretching and running disciplines of kindergarten to second grade, plus skill practice according to the specific unit of the master physical education calendar for the year.
