Physical Education Department

Teachers: Gregg Veitel and Lisa Keeslar(480) 472-7741

We are so proud and honored to be a part of this dynamic school and are looking forward to teaching your children a wide variety of motor skills as well as a lifetime love of fitness. Our major goals are to provide all students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors needed to live physically active, healthy lives. Physical education lessons in Mesa are carefully planned to help children develop a wide range of skills in the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective domains of learning. The daily lesson is 30 minutes consisting of a warm-up (2-3 min), fitness (7-8 min), lesson focus (15-20 min), and a game (5-7 min). The focus of Wilson PE is on success, social awareness, and high self esteem. Go Dragons!
