Because children are continuously developing physically and emotionally, they are especially affected by the benefits of physical activity. Besides physical fitness, some notable benefits of P.E. include reduction in stress and anxiety, strengthened peer relationships and self-esteem, even improved academics.
At Valley View, students participate in weekly sessions with expert instructors from Got Game Sports, funded entirely by the PTA.
A variety of sports and games are taught, including handball, Frisbee, kickball and more. The students have an opportunity to develop their loco-motor skills, practice teamwork and re-energize in a positive environment. Per LAUSD's policy, students engage in 100 minutes of P.E. per week.
