Physical Education

Mr. Hardy

Mission Statement

We believe the purpose of the physical education program is to encourage children to develop a positive attitude about themselves and physical activity so that they choose to be physically active throughout their lives. Children need a variety of movement experiences to develop a healthy mind and body that is capable of learning. The involvement of young children in daily physical activity during school hours is critical for their current and future health.

Many thanks to the Oakdale School Community for supporting the American Heart Association's 2016 Jump Rope for Heart Event. Over $9000 was raised for this worthwhile cause this year. Our students at Oakdale not only learned about helping others, but also spent time jumping rope to keep their hearts healthy. The Oakdale community has participated in this fundraiser for 17 years and has raised over $88,000.Thank you to our volunteers.

Parent Information: Students in Grades K - 5 have physical education once a week for forty-five minutes. Preschool has twenty minutes of physical education per week. Please remind your child to wear sneakers on PE day! Thank you.
