Physical Education

At SFC, we feel strongly about the development of our students academically, physically, socially, and spiritually. 

Physical Education Program

With two PE teachers, Saint Frances Cabrini Catholic School offers a Physical Education Program for grades preschool through eighth grade, with a frequency that varies from one to three times a week depending on the grade level. Preschool and Kindergarten students are exposed to a motor skills class along with two PE class each week. Our program includes the President's Physical Fitness Program as part of the curriculum for grades four through eight. The national average for passing all of the components and earning the Presidential Patch and Certificate is 15%. The performance of our students has increased every year and now more than 60% our students in grades four through eighth earn the patch and certificate.

After School Team Athletics

We offer a "no-cut" athletics program for students in grades 5 through 8.

Boys Flag Football Basketball Volleyball
Girls Volleyball Basketball Field Hockey

Students play other schools in league play as well as in tournaments. Our students can also participate in an annual Spring track meet each year against all of the elementary schools in the diocese. The meet is held at one of the Catholic high school in the area. The top three students (by gender, by grade, by event) are selected to participate in the individual events through try-outs, but any interested student (grades 5 to 8) is guaranteed to at least participate in relays.
