    Current Work in Silvia Physical Education: 

Student's in grades K-5 are currently working on learning field day activites. With an empahsis on recycling this year, the PE department has had fun putting together an array of games utilzing recycled materials as equipment. We are looking forward to June 20th and hoping for some great field day weather! Students in grades 4-5 are also amidst a cycle kids program learning all about bike safety. We are getting our Silvia Stars ready for a summer of bike riding adventures!

You hear it all the time...guardians quick to tell children to stop playing with electronics! The Silvia Elementary Physical Education Department is here to let families know that we can now use technology to promote physical activity!  We will now high light an app or website each month that can be used by students and/or parents to assist with reinforcing movement and learning at home.

This month's app highlighting basic balancing challenges you can try with your kids at home can be found on iTunes at the app store!
