• Welcome to Physical Education at KES!

    At Kernersville Elementary School, students get to participate in physical education (PE) weekly.  During our PE classes, we strive to teach all students how to use their bodies to be physically active as well as instill healthy habits.  This allows students to learn about healthy lifestyle choices so they can grow up to be healthy, well rounded adults.  Throughout the year our focus is to expose students to a variety of sports and fitness activities.  Students learn many of the following:

    Kindergarten through 2nd Grade:

    • Warming up
