Physical Education

At Grass Valley, we are fortunate to have a number of outdoor spaces which allow children to move, run, exercise and play. Students have structured physical activities at least once a week, run by Craig Colbert, affectionately know as "Coach." Coach Colbert teaches the children playground games, sports, exercises and rules of fair play.


I have always believed that exercise is the key not only to physical health but to peace of mind. Nelson Mandela

Our Healthy Recess program is based on the Playworks model, which our staff was trained in. As a part of this model, Junior Coaches, 4th & 5th grade leaders, come out at recess and help students learn even more active recess games where everyone is included.
