    Welcome to Physical Education Class at Shaler Academy!  I look forward to an exciting year with all of our new and returning students.  The Physical Education Program is unique to other areas of study because it is the only program that is concerned with all of the individual's areas of development: physical, emotional, social and cognitive.  The main objective of the department is to motivate the students to become more active and to develop skills through physical fitness, dynamic activities, movement concepts and game play.
     
    Students will be introduced to various sports through lead-up games and skill challenges. Emphasis is placed on individual improvement, sportsmanship, movement exploration, cooperation, safety and fun.  Lifelong wellness through Physical Education will assist in the overall development of the individual during their school years while providing a foundation for healthy living throughout their lifetime.
     
    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or have a specific skill or talent that you would like to share with your child's class.  The best way to reach me is via email: kmacdougall@ridgefieldschools.com or you can call me at 201-778-3579
