Physical Education Philosophy

To prepare all students with a variety of movement experiences that will lead to an active and healthy lifestyle.

 

Overview

Physical Education contributes to the physical, intellectual, social and emotional well-being of the student. Our curriculum is devoted to purposeful instruction in developmentally appropriate activities to promote a positive self-concept through fitness, sport, and lifetime activities. Each student is able to achieve success according to his/her ability. Participation and involvement are required at all levels.  Health related fitness is the goal for all students. The curriculum intent is to provide students of all abilities and interests with a variety of movement experiences that will lead to an active and healthy life. Activities are taught in a coeducational environment. Fitness testing is administered each year with the focus on health-related fitness concepts.  Students needing adapted physical education are scheduled into a program tailored to their needs.
