At. St. Mary’s School for the Deaf, we believe all students should have the opportunity to develop their mental and physical potential. Physical education is a paramount phase of the total education plan for our students. Proper planning that includes broad goals with specific objectives subject to regular evaluation will facilitate the total growth of each student.

In addition, the National Standards as well as the New York State Learning Standard for physical education will be incorporated to enhance our students levels of performance.


Program Overview:
Our program is designed to develop the students from preschool through high school so that, upon graduation they may lead a healthy, active lifestyle. The program emphasizes physical fitness, motor development and sports skills, as well as individual and team activities.

The highlight of the program is the Annual Physical Education & Sports Demonstration (gym show) held every March. Students from preschool – high school participate in various activities in the show, which is performed for the entire school population and parents. Activities cover selected aspects of the curriculum from juggling and parachute to tumbling and ball skills.

    The physical education staff at St. Mary’s School for the Deaf would like to congratulate Riley Mullen

  for winning our Student of the Month in PE for the month of September 2016.  From the very beginning

    of  the school year, we have noticed Riley giving a great effort during class. She tries her best to not only listen

to directions but to watch and attempt to follow examples that have been demonstrated by the teacher.

Riley gets along well with her peers and is a pleasure to have in class.

Congrats again to Riley!
