Physical Education


Austin Elementary Physical Education

Mission Statement

The purpose of our program is to provide all students with the knowledge, skills, and desire to live a healthy and physically active life.

Physical Education activities are planned and conducted using the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) which is a guide for developing our curriculum with the proper alignment of scope and sequence. In addition to addressing psychomotor activities and cognitive awareness, all students are encouraged to display good sportsmanship and teamwork.

In addition to the “regular” activities, we also provide the opportunity to participate in optional activities that encompass goals and standards that pertain to our program. These activities include but are not limited to…Punt, Pass, and Kick,  Kids Heart Challenge, Kindergarten PE Program, and the Fifth Grade Track Meet. Wellness Running is our program that allows all our students to participate in every week to promote cardiovascular fitness.

It is very important to us that your child wears shoes that will help them be safe.  Athletic type shoes with a closed heal and toe are appropriate.  Dress shoes, sandals, high soles, crocks, boots, and flip-flops are not appropriate for our activities.  Thank you for your help with this matter!
