McCarthy-Towne Physical Education 

Physical Education at McCarthy-Towne aims to have students develop and be exposed to sport-related skills, be introduced to a wide variety of activities, think critically on cognitive concepts, and be able to learn life skills through group dynamics. When students are able to play in groups and can interact with each other, they learn people skills that can and will be helpful in their general classroom, outside of school, and throughout their lifetime. Through gameplay and group activities, all students K-6 will learn and practice the skills of communication, collaboration, teamwork, problem-solving, decision-making, strategizing, and much more.
