Physical education curriculum focuses primarily on cardiovascular fitness, gross motor development, and age appropriate activities and sports from kindergarten to eighth grade. Students are encouraged to focus their energy and enthusiasm on personal improvement, or reaching their personal best. The PE department understands the importance of the mind-body connection and includes mindfulness practice and social-emotional learning opportunities in every lesson.
In addition to physical education classes in which each grade participates, MP&MS offers after-school flag football, basketball, cross country, and track and field as part of the MP&MS After School Program. Students develop skills, practice, and participate in games and competitions with other Marin County schools.
The mission of the athletic program is to provide students with the opportunity to experience team sports and physical activity that cultivate personal growth, self confidence, and healthy living habits. We foster a positive and safe environment where all ability levels are supported and welcomed to participate.
