Fitness, people running

Concerns about the wellness and physical fitness of America’s children have possibly never been as great as they are today. A variety of factors have led to elevated concerns about poor nutritional and exercise habits among both youth and adults.

The schools of the Casa Grande Elementary School District wish to encourage the development of good habits of physical activity in students. Just as students’ academic success is the product of sound guidance and support provided by schools, families, and the community, the responsibility for promoting good nutrition and exercise must be shared by schools, families, and the community as well.

Students’ physical fitness must be encouraged at school, at home, and in the community through multiple opportunities to be physically active, including physical education classes, recess, before- and after-school physical activity programs, stretch breaks, transitions in activities, educational activities involving movement, and organized sports and recreation programs.

The Casa Grande Elementary School District provides many opportunities for students to participate in interscholastic athletics at the middle school level. Parents can obtain information about sports teams at any middle school office.
