Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!

Melrose Elementary PE is a fun and safe environment for our scholars to develop lifelong fitness and health goals!


Benefits of Physical Education.

To help create a healthy and active child, which will translate into a healthy and active adult.


When kids are active, their bodies can do the things they want and need them to do. Why? Because regular exercise provides these benefits:

Strong muscles and bones
Weight control
Decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetes
Better sleep
A better outlook on life

Healthy, physically active kids also are more likely to be academically motivated,
alert, and successful. And physical competence builds self-esteem at every age.


Thank You, Your Melrose Physical Education department.
