Welcome to the CSDR PE Department!

It is the goal of the CSDR Physical Education department to provide students with opportunities to develop an optimal level of physical fitness through the use of psychomotor development activities, cardiovascular endurance/flexibility/strength training, and wellness education. Health related activities are integral part of the program at all levels. The emphases of these activities are an awareness of the importance of daily exercise, social skills, sportsmanship, and the enjoyment of physical activity throughout a lifetime. A health related fitness test (Fitness gram) is administered each semester to all students in order to better assess student progress.

Course Offerings

CSDR has a two year High School PE requirement, as mandated by the California Department of Education.  Elementary, Middle School and High School have PE on a daily basis.  During the 6th grade, students have PE 2-3 times a week as they alternate with a STEM class during the week.

PE Clothes

Each student is expected to participate in the physical education program wearing a complete set of “marked” regulation gym clothes.

  • Required Shorts: CSDR RED gym shorts or students can provide their own as long as they are PLAIN RED. SHORT SHORTS (i.e. "soffe") are not appropriate for P.E.
  • Required Shirts: GRAY T-shirt with CSDR logo or students can provide their own as long as they are PLAIN (no logos, etc.) GRAY shirts issued by CSDR athletic teams/clubs are acceptable.
  • Required Shoes: Cross Training/Running type shoes appropriate for physical activity.  Shoes must have laces that can be tied. Slip-ons, Vans, Converse, etc., even with laces are not appropriate for P.E.) 

Cooler weather brings questions about sweatshirts and sweatpants.  Both are okay to wear in class as long as they are RED or GRAY. Leggings may be worn UNDER your PE shorts.

Some classes may require a uniform unique to their class activity.   Swimming Unit = Swim suit (does not need to be red), swim caps (goggles are recommended but not required).
 
All uniforms must be marked with student’s last name using a permanent marker. This should be done within the first week of class.  Lost uniforms cannot be reclaimed unless a name is clearly marked on the uniform.
 
THERE WILL BE NO “LOANER” PE CLOTHES
Students must responsible for having the appropriate P.E. Uniform for class each day.
