Students in 1st-5th grade participate in two 50 minute sessions of physical education (PE) each week. PE sessions are taught by a fully credentialed teacher and an assistant using the Alvord USD adopted curriculum of Spark PE. Spark PE is designed to be more inclusive, active and more fun than traditional PE classes. Some of the benefits of Spark PE include: increased academic achievement, increased physical activity for students, fitness achievement, and sport skills development. Students should wear comfortable clothing and shoes on their scheduled PE days.
