Our Lady of Guadalupe P.E. classes are held in the gym. We also take advantage of the field, tennis courts and our blacktop during good weather. P.E. classes are modified according to where we are located as there are some games that really require four walls!

P.E. classes are another outlet to commit ourselves to celebrate differences, promote communication and self expression, and to foster gospel values. All classes contain a cooperative game or activity to encourage inclusion and community.
