Physical Education

The RMES Physical Education program is another example of an excellent program within our school.  Not just gym time, our PE program is carefully designed to develop the physical skills of every student according to grade and ability.  Students learn the importance of health through exercise.  In preparation for the "Presidential Physical Fitness Test", our students learn and can demonstrate the correct techniques for each portion of the test, including proper pacing and running style.  Students in each grade also learn about specific sports - the rules and how to play each sport properly.  In winning or losing, coming in first, second, or last, Coach Lonto teaches each student the importance of representing Christ's character.  Whether in Kindergarten or 8th grade, students learn that their bodies were wonderfully created by God to do amazing things!

Students in grade 5 - 8 can also participate in our Intramural sports program.
