About P.E. +
Schools we serve
Hawes, Henry Ford, Selby Lane and Garfield.
With a grant given by the Sequoia Health Care District, Redwood City Parks, Recreation & Community Service Department (PRCS) is partnering with the Peninsula Community Center (PCC) to provide Physical Education classes for 9 schools in the Redwood City School District, serving grades K-5. This is a tremendous opportunity and a collaborative effort to ensure that the students in Redwood City have all the opportunities that they deserve to experience this kind of PE community!
PE+ is designed to help fill the basic need for physical education in local Redwood City schools suffering from budget cuts. During class time, our students enter into a community in which they are encouraged to value physical exercise, and to learn at their own pace. Our role is to help schools meet the California Physical Fitness Standards and build healthy school communities.
The PE+ program is designed to meet the social, emotional, physical, and learning needs of our Redwood City students. PE+ coaches engage Kindergarten through 5th grade students in structured Health and Fitness activities. The PE+ team considered many factors during development of its program: recommendations from curriculum experts, professional organizations, fitness and health experts; national and state guidelines and frameworks; the RCSD Fun Fit Guide; and the awareness of a need for a coach-friendly curriculum that can be implemented on our school campuses.
Our vision is that PE+ can transform the communities around the schools we serve. This transformation happens in 4 ways:
Physical transformation occurs by having the students participate in and learn about fitness and healthy lifestyle choices.
Social transformation is encouraged through the promotion of teamwork and by continuously affirming each student’s efforts and growth.
Emotional transformation is created by providing a safe place where students are free to express and share their emotions and feelings in a healthy way.
Meeting Learning Needs
Coaches lead skill-appropriate lessons for each grade level.
