Integral Part of Each Student’s Life
At Linfield Elementary School we believe that physical fitness is an integral part of each student’s life. Our physical education program is designed to ensure that all students are given the best opportunity to learn basic team sports skills and individual activities of conditioning, developing, and maintaining physical fitness. To work towards this goal, effective and challenging activities that develop high levels of cardio-respiratory functions, musculoskeletal strength, and endurance are included on a regular basis. Periodic testing, starting in first grade, helps students to be aware of their body and its potential. Linfield Elementary also offers a variety of athletic programs including Running Club, Sports Camps, and The President’s Physical Fitness Challenge.
Running Club is an opportunity for kindergarten through fifth grade students to exercise in a fun and rewarding way. It is held every weekday morning from 7:30 a.m.-7:55 a.m., and each student has from October to May to complete at least 100 laps around the Elementary School Track. If they do, they qualify for the club pizza party at the end of the year, a celebration which congratulates all of the runners on their amazing commitment and lengthy dedication. Students are also rewarded with exciting prizes such as Running Club T-shirts, pins, and baseball caps at 100 lap intervals.
