Physical Education

Elementary School

Changes are happening in physical education. During the 2022-2023 school year elementary physical education will be working within the Maryland State Department of Education (2022) curriculum framework for grades Prekindergarten - 2nd grade and the MCPS Physical Education framework from 2017.

Regardless of the framework your student will still learn and experience physical education that focuses on three main themes - movement skills and concepts (MSC), health enhancing fitness and physical activity (HEFPA), and personal and social responsiblity (PSR).
