The purpose of physical education is to develop physically-literate students. Students who  acquire the knowledge, processes, skills, and confidence needed to make healthy decisions and  engage in meaningful physical activity both in the present and for a lifetime.  Each year the students are introduced to more challenging activities that lead into skills used in lifetime sports and fitness activities.  As a result of physical education instruction, the student will be able to:
Demonstrate competence in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.
*Acquire, apply, and evaluate movement concepts and strategies to respond confidently, competently, and creatively in a variety of physical activity settings.
*Assess, evaluate, and synthesize health-related information to protect, enhance, and advocate for health, well-being, safety, and participation in physical activity across a life span.
* Enjoy and engage in regular movement-based learning experiences and understand and appreciate their significance to personal, social, cultural, and environmental health practices and outcomes.
