Physical Education and Health
The physical education program is based on helping students develop healthy, active lifestyles by experiencing a balance of activities in a positive, responsible, and cooperative environment. These activities include the movement areas of dance, fitness, adventure/cooperative education, and sports/games. It is through these experiences that we address the diverse needs of our students in the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive domains. The health education program offers a foundation of functional health information and skills so that students become health literate. Content areas are multidimensional, encompassing the areas of emotional wellness, intellectual wellness, spiritual wellness, social wellness, physical wellness, and occupational wellness. The dynamic nature of wellness requires that our curriculum focus on critical health skills, such as communication, decision-making, goal-setting, advocacy, self management, analyzing influences, and accessing information.
