Heywood Avenue School
Welcome back to a bright and fun filled school year! My name is Mr. Cherry and this is my third year teaching at Heywood Avenue School. In physical education, all grades will be going over motor movements, physical space, visual and verbal signals, cooperative interactions, and health topics. Health will also be integrated into the curriculum. Health topics will vary by grade level.
The goal of Heywood Avenue School physical education program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills to value and apply physical activity and its benefits for a lifetime. Every student will develop attributes in the area of physical education and health in an everyday setting.

Topics will be by grade level with more advanced in the 5-7 area.
