TPES FOUNDATION

Physical Education

FOUNDATION-FUNDED P.E. PROGRAM 
In addition to regular outdoor activity and physical education in our teachers' weekly plans The Foundation also provides a dedicated, qualified, Physical Education teacher, Coach Sergio.  Coach Sergio teaches physical fitness activities and games that are designed to help students meet the State standards for fitness. P.E. is offered to Grades K-5 one hour per week.

P.E. GRADE LEVEL ENRICHMENT 
In addition to the P.E. program your child attends throughout the school year, The Foundation has added special P.E. enrichment specifically designed for their grade level. All P.E. Enrichment classes will take place during your child's normal P.E. rotation.  This program is partially funded by a $10 registration fee from the Wednesday Enrichment classes.  The remaining funds for the program are drawn from the Foundation's general fund.

WHY OUR FAMILIES, TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATION THINK P.E. IS IMPORTANT AND WORTH YOUR FOUNDATION DOLLARS - Numerous nationwide and international studies are showing that students who are physically fit are not only healthier but do better in school, have fewer disciplinary problems, and have a better attendance rate.
