Welcome to the new 2017 - 2018 school year!
     What a pleasure it is to be able to work with the Carol Rae Ranch community.
The GOAL of a Physical Education lesson (education through movement) is to promote student growth in the Cognitive (knowledge), Psychomotor (physical), and Affective (emotional) domains by implementing the following objectives:
1.  Introduce and expose students to various game or sport experiences and allow practice to obtain higher skill levels, develop strategy planning, and cooperate with others.
2.  Inform students of the benefits from, and allow participation in, various physical fitness activities.
3.  Introduce, promote, and encourage good sportsmanship skills and fitness attitudes.
4.  Allow for practice in spatial awareness activities.
5.  By engaging in various individual and group physical activities, students will learn to follow rules and learn to respect and appreciate other individuals’ space, talents, abilities, and differences.
6.  Students will develop an attitude of being prepared and participating to the best of one’s abilities.
7.  Allow student exploration in many settings using various pieces of equipment.
We have lots of fun engaging in many activities while trying to learn how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is my hope that your children come home happy about P.E.
