Pathfinder K-8

Student Life


Pathfinder Athletics

Regular exercise is essential to a healthy lifestyle. The primary goal of the Physical Education program at Pathfinder is to have all students participate and find success and enjoyment in a wide variety of class activities.

Physical fitness activities build strength, endurance, balance, flexibility and self-esteem. Individual skill building is essential to a physical education program in order to promote all forms of physical activity and lead to lifelong habits.

Our program encourages each student to work on individual skills at their own pace, against no other standard but their own goals in anon-threatening and non-competitive environment.

Finally, since nutrition is also a very vital component of a healthy lifestyle, we will have discussions and activities centered on the importance of combining a healthy and nutritious diet with daily exercise.
