Good Day CCCS Community,
The PE Program at CCCS has a goal of teaching 100 things over a 9 year span. I have three levels of content: K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. Primary students participate in a variety of games and activities. 3rd-5th begin sports and build on fundamentals as well as playing a variety of fun games. 6th -8th will play a different sport each month and we'll play a few fun games as well for variety.
Classes meet twice per week for 30-35 minutes for the elementary and 40 minutes for the Middle School. We have a variety of tests throughout the year, some required, most voluntary. Highlights of the year include a variety of Dodgeball Games, a new sport each month, and the The CC 500.
Athletic Shoes & some form of CCCS T-shirt for Middle School. No tights this year in PE, (male or female) unless under shorts.
