Physical Education (PE) Curriculum for Grades Pre K-5

In District 89, we approach our Elementary Physical Education Program with the intent to develop the whole child in mind, by focusing on three domains of learning: affective (motivation, confidence, self-esteem, and engagement), cognitive (knowledge and understanding), and physical (physical competency, fundamental motor skills, technique, and psychomotor skills). We achieve this by integrating activities such as tumbling, throwing, and catching, cooperative and team building and physical fitness. As our students mature and develop, we then progress them to team sports, such as basketball, volleyball, golf, bowling, floor hockey, and softball.

Comprehensive Athletic Program for Grades 3-5

As a natural progression from their experiences in Physical Education, in District 89 we offer a competitive Athletic Program (modeled from our middle school program) in which Students can represent their schools in a variety of after school athletic programs. District 89 Students will have the opportunity to be a part of a selected team and compete against other District 89 Schools in Cheer, Cross Country, Girls and Boys Basketball, Girls and Boys Volleyball, Girls and Boys Futsal, Coed Wrestling, and Coed Softball.
