How often do the students attend physical education class?
Kindergarten classes come to the gym twice a week for 30 minutes. Grades 1 thru 5 come to the gym twice a week for 35 minutes. Is this enough? NO, but it is the current schedule that we follow.Back to Top

These bipartisan bills would require that schools provide 30 minutes of moderate to rigorous physical activity for students each day, increase required physical education time for high school students from half unit to a full unit, require that schools offer more nutritious foods and beverages, require body mass index screenings for students entering 3rd, 5th, and 9th grades, and increase access to free breakfast for students who qualify.We are currently doing a study group as a Health/PE Dept. (K-12) on ways to improve things here at Orange.Back to Top
