Health, Physical Education, and Driver Education Department

Philosophy and Overview

We believe that physical education is that phase of the school experience planned to promote an individual's health and skill related fitness development through the participation in physical activities. The program and associated experiences are planned with special consideration for the needs of individuals as well as members of a social group. We believe the health of each individual is dependent on the establishment of understandings and habits, which prepares all students to actively and effectively achieve and promote lifelong wellness. The physical education program introduces and reinforces for each individual the sources, knowledge, and skills to enable them to effectively utilize their leisure time and, if necessary, develop a personal fitness program for future needs.

We will provide for opportunities for physical activities that:

  1. Are appropriate and enjoyable for students of all skill levels and are not limited to competitive sports.
  2. Appeal to girls as well as boys, and children from diverse backgrounds.
  3. Can serve as a foundation for activities throughout life.
  4. Are offered on a daily basis
