Physical Education Program
The physical education program at P.S. 212 Queens uses many resources to engage students and enhance their fitness levels and awareness in a fun and safe way.
Students also learn fitness through exciting activities, sports, and games which help develop leadership skills.
Students in grades 4 and 5 are required to participate in the Fitnessgram Test. Their warm-up includes components that will help prepare them for the test.
As part of the Physical Education program, there are culminating events such as Field Day where grades compete against each other in fun, cooperative games either at a public park or in the schoolyard.
Please remember to have your child wear SNEAKERS on days they have Physical Education. If you are interested in purchasing a phys. ed. uniform (t-shirts, shorts, sweatpants, and / or sweatshirts) please contact the PTA at (718) 898-6973.
