Physical Education

Welcome to Willow School’s Physical Education Department!

Mr. Carey, Mrs. Mastela, and Mr. Witkowski work together as a team to create a learning environment that is fun and safe for physical activity.

Throughout the school year, the students participate in various activities involving the five categories of proficiency that Homewood School District 153 has determined to be essential to our students’ physical education development. These categories include: ball skills, rhythmic/dance skills, manipulatives, locomotor skills and fitness. Each area involves a variety of fundamental and complex skills, lead-up games, cooperative and individual activities, as well as cognitive skills.

We strive to provide a well-rounded curriculum by learning new and innovative ideas and concepts to implement into our P.E. program by attending state P.E. and Health conventions and other related workshops. We want the students at Willow school to enjoy exercise and movement and benefit from our program.

As stated in the Willow school handbook, proper attire includes a pair of clean gym shoes to be kept at school, if possible, and a pair of shorts for girls who wear skirts or dresses during P.E. class. Also, if your child needs to be excused from participation, please send a written note with the child. If the child is excused by a physician, please send a copy of the doctor’s note to his or her physical education teacher.
