Elementary PE

Brian Murphy, Coordinator 


Hello Families,

The elementary PE teachers encourage all students to remain physically active for at least 60 minutes a day. We have created a weekly calendar to keep your students active for the remainder of this school year. These lessons are designed to be used on a daily basis.

Each week we will hold a Friday Fitness Challenge!!  Students can complete the challenge activity and as a bonus, parents can post a video onto Instagram or Facebook to show off their skills!  Be sure to use #CeresLearnsAtHome and #CUSDfridayfitnesschallenge so your PE Teachers can keep track of your success! For weekly schedules please click on the links down below:

 The Ceres Unified School District’s elementary physical education program provides standards based physical fitness instruction to kindergarten through sixth grade students. The program is designed to empower students to sustain lifelong physical activity as a basis for a healthy, productive life. The staff teaches in an active, caring, supportive, and nonthreatening environment that allows all children to be challenged and successful.

Instruction is provided by the elementary PE teachers 45 minutes once a week for first through third grade students. Fourth through sixth grade students receive 90 minutes of instruction per week from the elementary PE teachers. The core classroom teachers also provide additional instructional time each week to ensure the required physical education minutes are met. For elementary students who participate in band and music programs during school hours, they are able to meet the PE required number of minutes through the Extended Day PE Program.

Please contact the school site for more information regarding PE schedules and Extended Day PE.
