ICOLPH Physical Education
The goal of physical education is to help prepare students to live healthier lives in every aspect. In P.E. we will address the whole student mind, body, and soul. Students will have the opportunity to learn about health, fitness, nutrition, movement strategies, teamwork, sports, sportsmanship, stress-management, self-confidence and problem solving. This will be accomplished through exposure to a wide variety of exercises, sports, team building activities, and games in order for students to learn to love fitness while building cognitive and social skills. P.E. at ICOLPH will be centered on fun and safe environments in order to help students succeed in every aspect.
K-3rd grade: Closed toe athletic shoes, water bottle (optional)
4th-8th grade: ICOLPH PE uniforms and Closed toe athletic shoes, water bottle (optional)

Students will sign-up if they would like to participate in intramurals. If a student doesn’t want to participate in intramurals they may still come over to the gym and watch the tournaments.
