WELCOME TO TOLBERT PE
Elementary Physical Education is a developmental program designed to enhance movement, balance, fine and gross motor skills, and general physical activity. Skills themes encompass many aspects of movement and apply these skills to both new and familiar activities. Physical education is taught three days per week for 30 minutes by the PE Specialist. The classroom teacher compliments what is taught in PE on alternate days so that students are physically active daily. The Virginia Standards of Learning identify the fives strands listed below for physical education:
Demonstrate competence in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.
Movement Principles and Concepts

Achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of personal fitness.

Physically Active Lifestyle
