The mission of the physical education program is to help students learn the skills necessary for performing a variety of physical activities and understand the benefits of achieving and maintaining a physically active lifestyle. This will be achieved by teaching students how to:
- Demonstrate proficiency in all fundamental movement skills and patterns and competence in several specialized movement forms.
- Apply movement principles and concepts to learning and developing motor skills and specialized movement forms.
- Achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of personal fitness.
- Demonstrate responsible personal and social behaviors in physical activity settings.
- Demonstrate a physically active lifestyle, including activity within and outside of the physical education setting.
We envision helping students move from dependence to independence for their own health and fitness by promoting regular, enjoyable physical activity. This vision will be accomplished when all children, regardless of athletic talent, physical and mental abilities or disabilities, intrinsically value personal wellness.
