Physical Education

Mr. Tursini's Gym ClassThe Comprehensive Physical Education Curriculum Guide focuses on the following eight areas of instructional skills and activities: Health-Related Fitness/Wellness, Sports Skills, Body Mechanics, Stunts and Tumbling, Dance, Basic Movement Skills/Coordination, Adapted Physical Education and Aquatics. The incorporation of a well designed, sequential program will contribute extensively to the physical, mental, emotional and social development of all students in grades PK-12.  The objectives of the curriculum guide have been written to reinforce the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.  First Avenue School students are being empowered to choose physical activities which promote and support a healthy lifestyle of nutrition and weight management, and to maintain a lifetime of wellness and successful living.
