At Center Valley, our goal in P.E. is to teach students the basic skills for movement, activity, and sports, in hopes that they find something that interests them and helps them keep moving throughout their lifetime. Each class comes to P.E. two times per week for 30 minutes. We teach units or activities for two weeks at a time and students learn a variety of skills from cup stacking, jumping rope, dancing, basketball, disc golf, and even fishing! In P.E., students learn to challenge themselves, to set goals and work towards them, and to work well with teammates, all while gaining more confidence in their abilities. We want all kids to have fun while learning and moving. In addition, we offer several special activities and opportunities throughout the year to encourage students and families to be active outside of school and at home.
Second-Grade - Lifetime Fitness Day - Russellville School District second-graders gather at the Russellville Country Club and rotate through multiple stations promoting lifetime physical activity: fishing, tennis, gold and lawn games.
Third-Grade - Kickball Tournament - Russellville School District third-graders get together at Hickey Park and play in a Round Robin Kickball tournament.
Fourth-Grade - District Track Meet - Before transitioning to fifth-grade, all fourth-graders meet at the RHS track and compete in a Track Meet through running events, relays, and field events.
Farm to You (every other year) - All students rotate through stations learning where their food comes from, how it ends up on their table, and the benefits of eating healthy.
Cup Stacking Day is a chance for all students to learn coordination and stacking skills while racing against the clock. What fun!
Field Day is the best day of the entire school year! To make it happen, we always need parent helpers. Each spring, a school day is devoted to a variety of fun games and physical activities, and all classes participate in a rotation.
