The mission of Physical Education in the Archdiocese of Omaha is to provide all students with opportunities to gain knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes that encourage life-long participation in healthy physical activity. The program is designed to assist students in their responsibility to develop to full potential their God given talents.
At ASCS students participating in the Physical Education program will achieve four main outcomes:
Students at ASCS work towards these outcomes through several units throughout the year. These units are designed to promote physical development and foster life long fitness.
Students in the primary grades concentrate on units such as ball-handling, throwing, catching and rolling. They work on basic movement like skipping, walking, running and jogging and also learn how to jump rope and to hoola-hoop.
As students grow and move into the intermediate grades, they move on to learning sports such as kickball, basketball, bowling, relay races and more. Students learn both the rules of the games and the positions. Students are also exposed to archery safety and rules.
Once students reach Junior High, they have gained a solid foundation in many different sports and physical activities. They move on to learn even more in basketball, archery and other fitness activities. They also improve on skills in volleyball, flag football and frisbee.
The All Saints Catholic School Physical Education Curriculum truly provides students with a foundation for life-long fitness.
