At Rancho Gabriela, students are introduced to and participate in regular physical activity through Physical Education (PE) specials classes. Additionally, our older students can begin competitive sports through Cross Country beginning in third grade. It is our goal to provide positive, healthy athletic experiences for our students.

Cross Country

Students in third and fourth grade may choose to participate in Cross Country after school. The team competes against other Dysart schools during the Fall season, and is a great way to get involved in a safe and supportive environment.


Physical Education class will include age and physically-appropriate activities centered around fitness activities, sports, health science, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Students will learn skills related to lifetime activities including how to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, movement and how it impacts the human body, the rules, tactics, strategies, and etiquette of games and sports.
