Physical Education

Every student in every grade participates in STMC's Physical Education program.  Activites change regularly, and have included basketball, volleyball, yoga, dodge ball, running and dance.  The activities and benefits of the Physical Education program will be greatly enhanced by the expansion of athletic facilities for which the STMC Foundation is currently striving to raise funds. 

Classes focus on equal participation, basic knowledge of various activities, sportsmanship in competition, and confidence-building so that students may continue in an active pursuit beyond school.

The objectives of STMC's Physical Education program are:

  • To ensure that all students get a minimum level of physical activity each week.
  • To introduce students to a variety of fitness activities with the intent that students might adopt a healthy outlet or hobby that they can continue outside of class, and
  • To provide a different kind of learning environment in which to teach important social and emotional skills such as teamwork, sportsmanship, and dealing productively with mistakes and criticism.
