Physical and Health Education

Physically active and educated children are more likely to thrive academically and socially. It is for this reason, as well as many others, that Pulaski International School of Chicago provides a quality Physical Education program to all students grades Kindergarten through 8th.

Physical Education at Pulaski is designed to get your students moving and provide them with a foundation to be physically active throughout their lives. Students will learn about their bodies, different types of movement, engage in daily exercise that raises their heart rate, individual and team sport game play, as well as individualized skill development in many different areas of sport and exercise. Other areas, such as proper nutrition and how to effectively warm up to prevent injury will also be touched upon frequently throughout the year. Our primary goal is to make your children lifelong practitioners of exercise and sport!

P.E. instruction is designed and planned by using both the Illinois State Standards for Physical Education and the National Association of Sports and Physical Education (NASPE) Standards.  At Pulaski, students will critically think about their own bodies as it pertains to movement, situational decision-making in sport, and the short-term and long-term benefits of living an active lifestyle. Affective learning behaviors such as the demonstration of teamwork and positive encouragement/reinforcement of other students will be emphasized consistently.

Proper attire is paramount to ensure the safety of your child in Physical Education class. Students will be required to wear an indoor/outdoor athletic shoe without marking soles at all times. Boots, sandals, flip-flops, and Crocs will not be permitted. Students that do not have the proper attire will not be allowed to participate in physical activity. 

Remember, being physically active is something that everyone can enjoy at any age – both in and out of school. Now let’s get moving!
