Physical Education/Health
Students in grades 3/4/5 participate in physical education and health/nutrition classes together. Students meet with a P.E. specialist, funded through Nicasio School Foundation, twice a week in addition to having PE with a core teacher at least once per week. Most activities and sports take place outside, but Nicasio School's multi-purpose room provides an excellent indoor space when needed. Each spring, students in 5th grade join 6th graders for a one-week puberty education program.
