PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Field Day Hurdle Event

Welcome to Lyndale Community School's Physical Education Program. Children learn through movement experiences. They learn not only a game, a dance, or a skill, but to follow directions, to listen, to share, to plan, to strategize, to solve problems and to think. Through movement and learning, children can think, value and create.
