PK4-8

St. Rita has an immediate opening for a P.E. teaching position. This is a new position to add a fifth staff member to our P.E. department.

ST. RITA’S SPECIALISTS SCHOOL PROGRAM:
In addition to following St. Rita Catholic School’s Classroom Teacher Responsibilities and Duties description, specialists (PK -8) classroom teachers agree to follow department-specific position expectations.

SPECIAL CLASSES PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY:
St. Rita Catholic School’s Specials Programs provide our students with a well-rounded education. Beyond the regular classroom studies, specialized classes consist of visual and performing fine arts, physical education, technology, STREAM experiences,
languages other than English, library, and guidance. Our Specials Program classes are regularly taught by specific, specialized teachers who instruct in the early childhood and elementary schools. Our specialists also provide middle school electives that allow our older students to explore specific topics within a discipline.

SPECIALISTS’ PROGRAM POSITION EXPECTATIONS:
St. Rita Catholic School offers our early childhood and elementary school students specialized instruction on a scheduled rotating basis. Specials Teachers collaborate both vertically and horizontally within their teaching teams to sequentially and logically build upon knowledge as students progress from prekindergarten through the eighth grades. Generally, St. Rita’s Specials Teachers deliver outside programs for our families. Examples include musical shows and reviews, art shows, coaching, and portfolios of work.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION:
Physical education, PE or physical training, is an educational course that encourages psychomotor learning in a play or movement exploration setting to promote health. Physical education at St. Rita provides cognitive content and instruction designed to develop motor skills, knowledge, and behaviors for physical activity and physical fitness. St. Rita offers physical education to PK-4th graders daily, and 5th – 8th graders enroll in physical education courses in 3 or 4 quarters.
