Middle School Athletics

Head of School Jonathan Eades talks with Athletics Director David Holm about the Kinkaid P.E. and Athletics program

5th and 6th Grade Physical Education

In 5th and 6th grade PE, we have a 2-week sports unit separated by a 1-week lifetime activity unit. During the 2-week unit, we focus on sport-specific skill instruction and move into small-sided games. In our lifetime unit, we do things such as bowling, frisbee, yoga, etc. We ask that the students show up daily with their PE uniforms to change into, appropriate footwear, and a water bottle for proper hydration. Our goal is to promote movement, teamwork, and communication as they move through PE before entering Athletics.
