At Linden Meadows School, we know that physical literacy is
a journey not a destination. With that in mind our physical education program
helps students K to 8 acquire as well as build upon the movement, fitness and
social skills needed to live healthy, active lifestyles. Linden Meadows School starts every day with an Active Start
program, alternating opportunity for participation every second day between the
early years and middle years students. Physical activity before academic
activity shows an increase in engagement, focus and attention in many students.
Linden Meadows School actively participates in the PTAA
(Pembina Trails Athletic Association). Throughout the year students have the
opportunity to compete competitively against the other schools in our division
in cross country running, volleyball, basketball, badminton as well as track
and field activities.
Our students are able to participate in a
variety of lunch time intramural activities including drop-ins, game days and
round robin tournaments. All students in grades 4 to 8 are invited to join
intramural activities throughout the year. Though our intramurals we look to
reinforce the ideas of respect, sportsmanship and commitment though a wide
array of activities.
A couple of big days for our physical education program
include PAD (Physical Activity Day) and Tabloid Day. PAD is usually held in
February for our grade 5 to 8 students. Skiing, snowboarding, golfing, bowling,
swimming, rock climbing, are among the many activities. It is a great day of fun and
promoting active living, outside of the school setting.
Go Wolves Go, ARH ARH AWOOOOOO!!!
