Physical Education Curriculum

Saint Rose Catholic School uses the Diocesan Physical Education curriculum and incorporates Physical Best in our lessons. The Diocesan Physical Education Curriculum exposes children to a wide variety of activities in a process rather than product oriented format.

Saint Rose has a certified Physical Education teacher. Effort, Attitude, and Respect are the values chosen by the Physical Education department to emphasize in the Physical Education Curriculum.
