This school year, the physical education department will be diving in to the world of recycling! Get ready to learn about the amazing ways we can get smart, get recycling, and get active!  


Be on the lookout for recipients of the

PE Growth Mindset Award!


    Current Work in Silvia Physical Education: 

Student's in grades K-5 are currently developing their balancing skills. They are learning all about balancing on different bases of support while combining different levels and shapes. Along with learning the difference between static and dynamic balancing, children are practicing their ability to demonstrate muscular tension and extension of free body parts. The month of February will have us curling, twisting, stretching, and jumping our way through yoga and Parkour lessons as well!

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!
