P.E. In Action
The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has a great deal to be proud of; in addition to providing an outstanding core academic experience, our district also is known for our excellent Physical Education Departments, K-12. Beginning in kindergarten our district’s students are encouraged to move and interact as they begin their development to reach fitness standards. The SRVUSD School Board and Superintendent support P.E. for all students district wide.
For the past 12 years, elementary P.E. Specialists have been meeting each month to discuss and assess our programs to better meet the physical fitness needs of our students. Upper grade P.E. instructors take advantage of collaborative opportunities as well within site departments and district-wide workshops.
A TSA (Teacher on Special Assignment) or Lead teacher is appointed each year to mentor our district's P.E. and Special Programs educators. The result of this teamwork is our district’s high performing scores as measured by the State of California each year. All 5th, 7th and 9th graders are tested by the California State ”FITNESSGRAM” and our district results exceeds the state average.

Bay Area Physical Education-Health Project
Attached is the flyer for Bay PE-HP. It has all of the dates and registration procedures.
Sticks-to-Schools is a nonprofit organization devoted to reducing the epidemic of childhood obesity by making exercise fun. The organization works with schools in the Greater Bay Area to introduce lacrosse into their physical education curriculum or after school programs. Since 2005, the program has served 40,000 youth in 80 elementary, middle and high schools.
In January 2010 Rancho Romero Elementary School was chosen to benefit from this program. They received 40 beginner sticks and balls, 2 stick carrier bags, 2 curriculum guides to help implement lacrosse and an on-site orientation for a total of 10 hours by professional lacrosse instructors.
Please take a moment to view this video of the event. The teaching was top notch from Coach Bob and Coach Jen and the students were very engaged.
