An Overview of the Physical Education Curriculum
The Physical Education program at SMA follows the standards implemented by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Our preschool through grade eight program challenges students in the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective aspects of physical education. In addition, students work on motor development and motor learning skills, participate in team sports, develop social interaction, teamwork, cooperation, following directions, and sportsmanship. Our program provides life lessons that can be continued into adulthood with the hope of inspiring all students to pursue a lifetime full of physical activity. We provide a safe and friendly environment that allows every learner, no matter their ability, an opportunity to discover her/his potential.
