Regis Early Childhood & Lower School students have P.E. daily. In addition to this, boys have the opportunity to participate in morning recess before the school day begins and have a break and recess incorporated into their daily schedule as well.
With block scheduling in Middle School at Regis, students have strategically planned breaks for movement, never having more than two classes in a row. Morning recess before school starts the day out with an opportunity to get the body moving before the mind and spirit are engaged. After the first two classes of the day, students attend Advisory, then have a break to grab a snack, get in a game of soccer on the field, or throw around a football or frisbee. The next block of two classes ends with lunch and recess, then just one more block of two classes before the end of the school day. Also, Middle School students attend P.E. six out of the eight days on their schedule. P.E. is for a full class period.
Movement is not confined to the outdoors at Regis. In the spirit of Goal V, boys are encouraged to move within the classroom as an aid to their learning experience. Classroom instruction is designed for this freedom of movement, whether it be working in small groups, rearranging classroom furniture to best suit the lesson at hand or participating in lessons while sitting on the floor or in flexible seating.
