Physical Education helps student's develop the knowledge, fitness levels, motor skills, and personal and social skills to obtain the ultimate goal of a lifetime of physical activity and health.  Each student should be exposed to a healthful life style that includes consistent exercise and healthy habits.  The physical education program will introduce sports' skills and basic game play for all major sports.  Cooperative skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork will be emphasized.  Each lesson is composed so that motor skills as well as cognitive skills are enhanced.  Becoming a life long learner in physical education is the programs main goal.  The students focus on skill development with activities in partnerships and in games with small groups that allow everyone to participate

 

Skill development is measured through continued observation and skill tests.  Each student is encouraged to develop at their own pace.  The department stresses non-competitive behavior and sportsmanship throughout the skill development.  Encouragement and support is among the students is a priority throughout the curriculum.  With the ability to work with each other, students can have an excellent experience in class.
