• Welcome to the John Muir P.E. Department


    We are experienced and dedicated teachers encouraging psychomotor learning in a play or movement exploration setting. The John Muir Physical Education program focuses on the five components of physical education:


    1.       Cardiovascular Fitness: the ability of the heart, lungs and vascular system to deliver oxygen-rich blood to working muscles during sustained physical activity.

    2.       Muscular Strength: the amount of force a muscle or group of muscles can exert against heavy resistance

    3.       Muscular Endurance: the ability of a muscle or muscle group to repeat a movement many times or hold a particular position for an extended period of time

    4.       Flexibility: the degree to which an individual muscle will lengthen.

    5.       Body Composition: the amount of fat in the body compared to the amount of lean muscle mass.


    We look forward to working with your students!
