In PE, the students participate in a variety of fitness activities, play several modified kinds of games, learn sportsmanship, and participate in Burton's Presidential and National Fitness Program throughout the year. Awards are given out at the end of the year for students who earn Presidential or National status. The criteria to earn these are above and found in the slideshow.
The students that qualify in the upper grades can participate in the annual District Decathlon.
