Elementary School Athletics Program
Physical education (P.E.) is the education of and through movement. P.E. is the only subject which by the very nature of its content can affect how a person will feel every moment of every day for the rest of his or her life. Vector Prep and Arts’ elementary school athletics program supports the entire student by giving them room to release energy, become part of a team, and learn healthy habits.
A recent report by Active Living Research has revealed that P.E. has been substantially reduced despite evidence that increased physical activity throughout the day does not adversely impact students’ academic performance but increases it in many cases. Vector Prep and Arts Academy is not only dedicated to ensuring our students advance academically but benefit from our elementary school athletics program. Physical education is achieved through involving our students in sporting activities that not only benefit them with increased physical activity and a healthier lifestyle but also instill teamwork, competitive drive, sportsmanship, and equip students with tools that will help them lead a physically active lifestyle outside the school setting.
