The Physical Education curriculum follows the national standards for K-7 physical education. At Cedarwood School, cooperative and team-building skills are at the forefront of instruction as well as learning social skills in a fun and active environment. The essential life skills of water safety and swimming are included in the curriculum. Students have the unique opportunity to practice these skills in the junior Olympic swimming pool located on campus. Students in preschool – 7th grade attend PE classes two to three times a week. During this time, they learn to play a variety of sports, engage in organized games, and study health and wellness.
Athletic programs and teams are created around student interests. Programs change from year to year following the interest and needs of students enrolled. Beginning in Kindergarten, students have the opportunity to participate in league sports at a competitive level. Programs have included: track, cross-country, track and field, flag football, volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, and soccer. These programs not only advance our students physically but also build confidence and social skills which carry over to all aspects of their balanced development.
