At SouthBuffaloCharterSchool we present the students with a variety of challenging and stimulating activities throughout the year. Our physical education program helps create enjoyable, success oriented experiences that reach every child. Special attention is given to:
a) social interaction and the improvement of self-concepts, cooperation and sportsmanship
b) fitness and skill development
c) acquisition of basic fundamentals through conceptual learning
South Buffalo Charter School is proud to be one of the few schools that offer physical education to students in K-8 every day for 30 minutes.
Our number one priority is your child’s safety. Please help your child remember their sneakers everyday. Students that forget their sneakers but have appropriate dress shoes will be allowed to play.
The physical education curriculum is governed by the NYS Learning Standards for Health and Physical Education. Our primary objectives are:
To foster in children a love of physical activity and play
To instill a need for physical fitness in each child
To develop coordination and control
To provide opportunities for increased responsibility in planning, organizing and leadership
To give children a wide range of skill and game experiences
To provide experiences that will develop initiative, self-reliance, self-worth, honesty, kindness to others and a love of learning
To provide opportunities for the integration of physical education with other subject areas: language arts, math, social studies, science, health, music and art
All the students develop the skills, knowledge and behaviors to enjoy a lifetime of physical activity.
