Hello and welcome! My name is Mrs. Cathy Hardwick and I am the P.E. /Wellness teacher for Prairie Trace Elementary. Did you know that physical education can make a difference in your child’s future? By having early success in physical movements, skills, concepts and team play, your child will feel better about their ability to participate in recreational activities; be more successful if they choose to compete in youth sports; and find it easier to accept themselves and be accepted by their peers as they grow through their school and adult years.
In addition, learning about and participating in lifetime sports and gaining knowledge of the importance of lifetime fitness can encourage your child to be active and healthy for life. Our Surgeon General stated that physical inactivity is one of the many causes of obesity, type II diabetes and heart disease leading to mortality in our country. So, good physical education can make a difference in your child’s future!
