Physical Education

Coyotes KaBOOM grant

Physical Education
is important to us at Creighton School District. We believe that in order for students to learn, they need time to move and play. All Creighton students are provided physical education 2x per week. 

The physical education curriculum focuses on conditioning and fine-tuning motor skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork. Students participate in a number of organized sports and develop an understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies and tactics as they apply to the learning and performance of physical activities. Part of physical education is also learning how to create healthy habits. Our Mobile Ed. Cart visits different classrooms throughout the year to provide students with cooking demonstrations and teach about different fruits and vegetables. 

We have a number of partnerships that also focus on the physical education of students. 

Playworks is available at Biltmore Preparatory Academy, Gateway, and Loma Linda SchoolsPlayworks provides an onsite Playworks coach to teach students engaging and structured games to play during recess. All students have an opportunity to participate in Class Game Time for 45 minutes, twice a month where they learn the rules of various games as well as engage in community building with their class and teacher. As part of the Playworks program, our students are taught problem-solving techniques using Ro-Sham-Bo (rock, paper, scissors) to solve minor disputes. The program has supported the social-emotional learning of our students really became a game changer at Loma Linda.

Head out to the playground to watch our kids play in a kind, encouraging, and respectful manner. If you have time, jump into a game of 4-square. They love new faces and you're sure to get a high-five before you leave.

We also have a partnership with the Phoenix Coyotes that provides street hockey physical education curriculum to Excelencia, Loma Linda, and Papago Schools. The grant impacts students from kindergarten through eighth grade. Each school received $1,500 in Coyotes-branded street-hockey equipment, which included 50 sticks, 50 balls, 50 pinnies, two hockey nets, a stick bag, and a Coyotes-themed "Raise the Pack" banner.

KaBOOM, a non-profit organization provided Larry C. Kennedy School with a brand new playground equipped with a gaga ball court and garden. The grant allows Kennedy School to act as a neighborhood playground, staying open on the weekends and after school so students can have a safe place to play.
