Our Program
Schedule 2017 - 2018


Save the Arts P.E. is a fun fitness program to help you meet the 400 minute P.E. requirement in middle and high school. This state requirement is being enforced in our schools as we speak! Students whose schedules who are impacted by band, team sports or other school obligations often have a hard time with traditional P.E. schedules.  STAPE students attend class twice a week and receive full P.E. credit.  If you have special scheduling needs, we will work with you to make it happen for your child.

Coach Phillip and Coach Kool will provide a variety of fitness exercises, geared to improve strength, speed, flexibility, balance, cardio health and body knowledge. Students will also study and practice for the California Physical Fitness Test. Students in Save The Arts P.E. will gain confidence and self-esteem while discovering their true physical potential. A variety of movement skills will be taught that will help students excel in sports and exercise.  Skills from the following sports have been taught in our class: volleyball, baseball, football, tennis, soccer, ultimate Frisbee, hockey, basketball and more!

Our coaches will help to design a personal workout plan that fits student interests and abilities. We will check this “fitness homework” at each meeting with the goals of achieving lifetime health, maximizing music time and choosing activities that students love! Minutes signed off on by Coach Phillip will count towards the state PE requirement. Coach Phillip is a credentialed P.E. teacher for DMUSD (Del Mar Heights).
