Physical Education

Hello, my name is Lee Hertel and I am the Physical Education teacher here at Carl Sandburg.  I am excited to start another fantastic year of teaching our children the fundamentals of Movement, Health, and Exercise. 


Students will receive Physical Education class one time per week, however students will have the opportunity to sign up for intermural sport teams throughout the year.  This year we will have four Intramural Sports Programs that will be offered.  Each program will practice two times per week and end with a show for families and friends to come and watch.  The four teams will be:


Fitness Olympics




In addition to our Intermural sports programs we will also provide Primary Enrichment classes.  These classes will give the primary students the opportunity to perform physical activities in a structured setting, with friends from other classes.  In these classes, we will work on social skills and fundamental movement skills.


The curriculum that I will be using in C 2.0, which is the Montgomery County Public Schools Curriculum.  In addition to C 2.0 I will also follow the NASPE (National Association of Physical Education) Standards. 

Please remember to send your child to school with appropriate footwear for Physical Education.  This includes tennis shoes, basketball shoes, or sneakers of any type.  Students will not be allowed to participate if their shoes could cause them to get injured while performing.  Safety First!


Lets have a Happy Healthy Year!
