At STCS, Physical Education is an essential part of our mission to educate the whole child. It is important in the younger years to develop healthy habits of an active life which will enrich their lives for years to come. While some schools are reducing physical education to improve performance in “core subjects”, at STCS we insist on P.E. every day. Our motto is mens sana in corpore sano for we believe that an active physical life aids a healthy mind.
Physical Education is also intended to introduce our students to the value of sports. Sports, if engaged in the right way, is a wonderful venue for character formation. Through sports we learn endurance, patience, sacrifice, and teamwork. At St. Theresa Catholic School, Physical Education is an essential part of our mission to educate the “whole person.”
