Physical Education is based on the development of the mind and body. Educational objectives are reached through participating in mental and physical activity. In the Physical Education classroom, students build their knowledge and level of physical fitness, explore and learn a wide variety of motor skills, and develop responsible social behaviors that promote personal and group success. Written work and reading assignments provide for the integration of academic skills and present an opportunity for traditional cognitive challenges.
Each class includes fitness components, skill development, proper use and care of equipment, rules, strategies, and etiquette. The emphasis is directed towards lifetime participation and fitness.
