Team players. Leaders. Credit sharers. Gracious competitors. The lifelong enjoyment of physical activity and a healthy attitude toward athletic competition are the primary goals of the physical education and sports program at Westmark. This is achieved through an age-appropriate, creative and challenging athletics curriculum in Grades 2 through 10. From an emphasis on participation, fitness, skills and sportsmanship in the youngest grades to continuing participation and ability-based teams in the upper school, our enthusiastic student-athletes are well prepared for high school athletics and lifetime physical activities.
Valuable Life Lessons. Physical Education.Participation in our physical education program provides unique learning opportunities and is an integral part of the School’s mission. The life lessons taught are valuable and cannot effectively be replicated in the other contexts of day-to-day life within our school community. Great emphasis is placed on the physical fitness and wellness of the students. The goal of striving for a consistent level of excellence is essential.
P.E. at the Middle School
The goal of the Middle School Physical Education Program is to provide a supportive learning environment for this 3-year cycle through the structure of physical education and sport. Each of the 2 semesters is organized slightly differently. All semesters incorporate group fitness activities, team building, socialization and fun, with the intent that each student will accomplish a comfortable transition to the Westmark community while having the opportunity to build strong bonds with instructors, coaches, and classmates alike.
The fall term of the Middle School physical education allows students to participate in an extensive list, usually including sports such as: Ultimate Frisbee, Field Hockey, Flag Football, Soccer, Track and Field and Spike Ball. During the Spring Term: Street Hockey, Basketball, La Crosse, Diamond Games, Volleyball and Team Handball.
