Health + Wellness

The goal of the physical education program is to engage students in a variety of activities that will contribute to the development of a positive attitude toward physical fitness and a life-long habit for healthy living. Through fitness activities, and individual and team sports, Pinewood’s physical education classes help foster self-confidence, sociability, teamwork, and sportsmanship. In addition to the required physical education courses, Pinewood encourages all students to participate in the school’s interscholastic athletics program.

In addition to physical exercise through play and athletics, we believe in the importance of nourishing the body. Our school lunch provider is Epicurean Group of Los Altos, a food service contractor that specializes in fresh, seasonal, and organic food, prepared from scratch every day. Menus are customized based on feedback from students, faculty, and staff. The school lunch program is optional.

Parents, you can order this month's lunches here.
