Physical Education Guidelines

Quail Run Elementary School Physical Education Program

The aim of our P.E. program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle. This will be accomplished through California's Physical Education Content Standards which focus on a program that promotes physical, mental, emotional and social well being of every individual in the pursuit of lifelong health.

Student Attire & Equipment:
In an effort to provide the best opportunity for student learning and success, parents need to make sure their children dress properly for P.E. First through fifth grade Quail Run students will have P.E. classes weekly. On their P.E. days students should have:

  • Tennis shoes with velcro or laces tied and socks - NO skateboarder shoes, boots or sandals.
  • Comfortable clothes - if dresses are worn, please be sure shorts are worn underneath.
  • Plastic Water Bottle with child's name - this is important because the water fountains are not located near the activity area.

Student Injury/Illness
Students need to bring a note from a parent/guardian if they are unable to participate. This note is only valid for two P.E. classes. If more time is needed to heal, a doctor is required to fill out this form. It is our belief that while an injury/illness may prevent a child from doing all activities during P.E. class, there are many activities in which they can still participate.
Bring a book to read if unable to participate!  All notes to the PE teacher should include ...                                        

  • Child's name and date and teacher
  • Specific injury or illness
  • Specific activities child is not allowed to participate in
  • Parent signature and phone number

Month of November - Character trait = Appreciation

"We have so much to be Thankful For"

     November is a thankful time and many  of our activities include this theme. Dialogue with your child to find out what activities did they do in their PE class.

     Our Quail Trot is a grade level competition. Within their PE class the number of completed laps by each class participant in 10 minutes is counted and averaged. Each winning grade level class is awarded the "Quail Trot Winner" placard to be placed on their classroom door. Each student's effort is Appreciated.

     Guinness Book of World Records  > CUP STACKING  November 8th

Yes we are registered to participate. Way to Go Quail Run Explorers! Our goal is to pass the current record for the "Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day".                                        Each student's effort is appreciated.

       "Mr. Bones" is still visiting , but oh no.  He is missing some bones.  Can you find out the names of the missing bones?                             Hint: check the PE board for the answers.

Update: The week before Thanksgiving break has brought unhealthy air quality conditions to our area. Fortunately we are able to use our MPR and Kid's Country space to accommodate the PE classes.           We appreciate everyone help.

Month of October  - Character trait = Independence

        Poster themes:

Independence  = "Set a Goal" "Make a Plan" "Get to Work" Stick to It" "Reach Goal"

       This month is a busy time at Quail Run with Conferences, Harvest Festival and Halloween Fun.

Our Quail Run monthly core value is Independence. Our PE class activities have an independence theme sprinkled through the curriculum. We always emphasize skill learning and competency. Activities reflecting student's abilities to make decisions, react in a quick and thoughtful manner with a sportsmanship component are key. Ask your child about the PE activity of the week.

"Mr. Bones" also comes to visit as we talk about the skeletal system.

"Sometimes You Win...Sometimes You Lose...Always You Learn"

"The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is just the extra"

      SOCCER is the activity theme. 

Through our soccer stations we practice dribble and toe taps, throw-ins and traps, drop kicks, ground kicks and shooting at goal. 

Many students play or have played soccer and demonstrate good basic skills. Practice makes you better.

               Welcome back all Quail Run Explorers,

     August 6th brought us back for another school year. We have meet up with our old friends, helped new students find their way and meet all our new teachers. Ms. Reuveni  and Mr. Pearson are back and we have a new Physical Education teacher, Mrs. Hendrix who is here on Friday.

          When is your PE day?  Check to the right of this website.

     Our introductory lessons emphasized the importance of wearing proper running shoes, bringing a name labelled water bottle.   A hat, sunscreen and sunglasses are optional.

Your Physical Education grade represents the qualities of Participation and Sportsmanship.

We all played an icebreaker game of  "RoShamBo....Rockstar! which helps us solve a disagreement quickly and involves teamwork.  Another icebreaker was "Feed the Snake" using hula hoops and a lot of teamwork and cooperation.

      Kinder, First and Second grades have worked on body part identification with a game called "Snickers & Hoots". We are learning and reviewing our gallop, hop, skip, jump, run, slide and walking safely to and from activities in a variety of fun game formats.

     Third, Fourth and Fifth grades will be reviewing the playground recess game rules especially popular > basketball, four square, kickball, tetherball and wall ball.

Smiles with Super high 5's,

Ms. Reuveni and Mr. Pearson and Mrs. Hendrix

Ms. Reuveni

Ms. Reuveni
Hello everyone and welcome to Quail Run.  I moved to the San Ramon Valley in 1979, but I was born and raised in New Jersey.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Health and Physical Education with a minor in Biological Sciences,  a Master's Degree in Education and an Adapted Physical Education certification.  I have three grown children Rachael, Marissa and Greg. I am a proud grandmother. This will be my eleventh year at Quail Run and each school year is new and exciting!

Our children love to move and play. Elementary Physical Education is a very important part of student learning.  Communication, collaboration and creativity are basic components of Physical Education.  Students will use these skills throughout their school day, with their friends and family, during leisure activities and eventually in the work place. My goal is to make Elementary Physical Education  FUN and SAFE! 

I like to bike, swim and hike, travel to new places and visit family, reading books and magazines and going to the movies.

~Ms. Reuveni
