Health

In health the focus will be on providing students with the lifelong tools they need to increase the quality and length of their lives. Students learn about nutrition, hygiene, disease-prevention and the importance of developing habits of for a healthy life.  Health will be taught in 8th grade.  More details to come regarding length and units taught.


Physical Education

We are looking forward to a busy and productive year in Physical Education. All students will be involved in activities on alternating days. Throughout the year we work on cardiovascular strength, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance. We like to stress the importance of staying active and being fit. 

Physical Education is the means by which students test and increase their physical limits. Attention is given to kinesthetic actions and reactions to various types of physical activity. Students participate in a variety of recreations from table tennis to flag football, incorporating individual and team sports.


"Physical Education is the only subject which by the very nature of 
its content has the potential to affect how a person will feel every 
moment of everyday for the rest of his or her life."  
-Allan Russell
