Our mission in physical education at Daves Creek Elementary is to help children develop a foundation for a healthy lifestyle that will continue throughout adulthood. We encourage daily physical activity through fitness, sport, movement, dance and recreation skills.
Our primary goal is to provide children with opportunities to reach their full potential physically, socially, and mentally. The physical education program at Daves Creek Elementary provides children with skills and knowledge that will help them to develop physically active lifestyles in order to live a longer healthier life.
Let's get our kids physically fit!
Parents, we encourage you to come and be a part of your child’s PE program. When children see their parents being physically active, they are more willing to be physically active. Please come and join us and be a positive role model in your child’s physical development!
Georgia SHAPE begins with a basic, benchmark measurement of fitness among our students called FITNESSGRAM. The FITNESSGRAM tool used for SHAPE’s annual standardized fitness assessment evaluates five different parts of health-related fitness, including aerobic capacity, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition using objective criteria. It also generates reports providing valuable individual, school, and state-level data to empower parents, schools, and the community to best access the current health needs for children in Georgia. The report is delivered confidentially to families and aggregate results are reported to create a true “snapshot” and highlight areas for improvement.
