Ridgeview Physical Education:

Students at Ridgeview have physical education either 2 out of 3 days for 25 minutes or 1 out of every 3 days for 50 minutes following the Bloomington Public Schools physical education and wellness curriculum.  The focus is on essential standards that help them become physically literate for the 21st Century.  Proficiency is reached by providing learning targets that focus on specific physical skills, developing socially/emotionally, and providing the necessary tools for lifelong fitness.  Please click on the following link titled Ridgeview Physical Education Website to learn more about what students are learning and doing in class.
