The physical education program is designed for students to develop the skills and attitudes necessary to achieve and maintain lifelong health and fitness. Students will be encouraged to gain an active appreciation of the positive role of physical fitness in overall health and well-being, as well as developing socially useful participation skills. The program seeks to provide for the equal participation of all students through a variety of experiences leading to the development of positive self-concept, creativity and enthusiasm for participation. The physical education program is divided into five main activities: Foundations of Wellness, Health Related Fitness, Individual Physical Activities, Movement Skills Performance, and Team Physical Activities.
