Physical Education

According to the U.S. Surgeon General, regular physical activity is one of the most important things that people can do to maintain and improve their physical health, mental health, and overall well-being. A student who is physically educated is more likely to become a healthy adult who is motivated to remain healthy and physically active throughout his or her life.

The CSDR staff understands the critical importance of offering a quality K-12 Physical Education program to CSDR students. A physically educated student will maintain an active lifestyle which has many benefits. The Physical Education staff aim to teach our students both physically and mentally in fundamentals, discipline, and knowledge.

The Physical Educationcurriculumis based on the Physical Education Model Content Standard for California Public Schools. Instructional activities are fun and age appropriate.
