Physical Education

The YMCA Youth Fitness Program assists our classroom teachers in providing a rich physical education program to all grades at Brentwood Science Magnet. 

The goal of this program is to increase students' awareness and enjoyment of physical activity and to prepare them for a lifetime of active, healthy living.  During class we introduce the students to the YMCA six pillars of character. The six pillars are: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.  They also teach effective warm-ups, increase flexibility and use a variety of games to fulfill the California State Standards.  

This year students participated in many units including, fitness, soccer, football, kickball, cooperative games, and many more.  Throughout the program, we attempt to prepare students for the fifth-grade state physical fitness assessment and this year we saw improvement in every tested area at BSME.  This unique partnership between the Collins & Katz Family YMCA and Brentwood Science Magnet has been very successful this year, and we hope to continue for years to come.
