Physical Education is taught to all Mesa students: 40 minutes for Kindergartners, and 90 minutes for 1st through 5th graders. This programming is a sequential curriculum that is based upon the Boulder Valley Physical Education Standards.
Standards are further enhanced through special programs offered during class times such as P. E. Helpers, the Mesa Mile/Half Mile Run, Jump Rope for Heart, 4th & 5th Grade Outdoor Education, and Track & Field Days.
After-school opportunities include Karate, Jump Rope Clinics, Mesa Fitness Club, and Pasta Pig-out.
"Children achieving active, healthy lifestyles" is a philosophy that is practiced in the Gym. Keeping children physically active and fit is the overriding emphasis of Mesa's Physical Education Program. We achieve this goal by offering a wide variety of individual and team activities designed to pique each child's interests during the school year. The final focus is on safe, responsible behavior that includes cooperation with others and demonstration of good sportsmanship at all times. We are a caring and supportive community of learners.
