Physical Education

The Physical Education program utilizes health “related fitness,” (physical fitness), sports, movement and dance activities to develop and enhance each student’s potential. This approach assists students in acquiring the habits, knowledge, and decision-making skills necessary for the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle as well as the engagement of recreational pursuits throughout their lifetime.
Physical Education focuses on the following eight areas of instructional skills and activities: Health-Related Fitness/Wellness, Sports Skills, Body Mechanics, Stunts and Tumbling, Dance, Basic Movement Skills/Coordination, Adapted Physical Education and Aquatics. The incorporation of a well designed, sequential program will contribute extensively to the physical, mental, emotional and social development of all students in grades PreK-8. The students will also be empowered to choose physical activities which promote and support a healthy lifestyle of nutrition and weight management, and to maintain a lifetime of wellness and successful living.
