PE+ is a strategic Healthy Schools Initiative partnership project between Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) and Peninsula Community Center (PCC). These two organizations provide physical education classes 2 days per week for grades K-5, plus recess/lunch activities and support, at 10 school sites in Redwood City School District, reaching over 5000 students per year.
Trained PE+ coaches who are passionate about sports/fitness, youth development, and community engagement deliver a comprehensive, sequential, standards-based PE curriculum that:
- provides instruction and exposure to a wide variety of sports and games such as volleyball, dance, soccer, Frisbee, and culture games
- improves children’s physical fitness and motor skills
- promotes healthy lifestyle choices and eating habits through “Health & Nutrition Huddles”
- develops the social-emotional well-being of each child by building confidence, teamwork, and enjoyment of physical activity
