 Sneakers must be worn for physical education. Sneakers must cover the entire foot and ideally, they should either have laces or Velcro to secure the shoe to your child’s foot. Boots and sandals are not safe or acceptable.

The New Jersey Core Curriculum has 2 standards for physical education.

Standard 2.5 – Motor Skill Development – All students will utilize safe, efficient and effective movement to develop and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.Exercise!

Standard 2.6 – Fitness - All students will apply health-related and skill-related fitness concepts and skills to develop and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

 Through physical education at Knowlton Township School, we are working to achieve these standards.


Join the Wall of FAME (Fitness, Activity, Movement & Exercise)  Complete on-line or paper physical activity logs and show the school how much you move outside of school.

Obesity and children

 

  • Obesity threatens the healthy future of one third of all American children. Obesity rates have tripled in the past 30 years.

  • We spend $150 billion every year to treat obesity-related conditions, and that number is growing. For the first time in American history, our children's life expectancy may be shorter than their parents'.

  • We need to get moving.

  • First Lady Michelle Obama, with the help of community leaders, teachers, doctors, nurses, moms and dads, has launched a nationwide campaign to tackle the challenge of childhood obesity.
