WELCOME TO THE LOVETT PE PROGRAM
LOVETT ELEMENTARY HEALTH AND FITNESS DEPARTMENTOur PE program is unique for HISD as we have the opportunity to teach our students twice a week for physical education classes. We strive to teach the students that all physical activity is important to a healthy body and mind. Nutrition is a very vital part of our program. We encourage healthy eating habits by offering our Heart Healthy card game where students can earn a prize and recognition for making healthy food habits. We also introduce lifelong sports such as tennis, bowling, kickball, soccer, basketball, and running.
A variety of PE programs are offered at Lovett including our Track team which this year involves two track meets. Students in grades 3-5 compete for positions on the track team. Another wonderful program is “Girls on the Run” which is offered for our girl students in in the spring for grades 3-5. This year we had two different classes offered due to the popularity of the program (hopefully we can offer 2 classes again).
