Physical Education at McCarthy-Towne is aimed to have students develop and be exposed to sport-related skills, be introduced to a wide variety of activities, to think critically on cognitive concepts, and be able to learn life skills through group dynamics. 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. These life skills will be helpful in their general classroom, outside of school and throughout their lifetime.</a="">
