Physical Education

The purpose of physical education is to help students acquire the knowledge, processes, skills, and confidence needed to engage in meaningful physical activity both in the present and for a lifetime. The practice of leading a physically active lifestyle will bring about personal enjoyment, challenge, satisfaction, and a health-enhancing level of personal fitness. (Virginia Department of Education.)

At J.B. Watkins, we design our lessons to provide an active and instructional environment. All skills and activities are aligned with state SOL’s. The goal of our program is to give students the knowledge they need to lead an active and healthy lifestyle outside the classroom. We do our best to incorporate fitness concepts and skill related activities into each lesson.

With childhood obesity becoming a worldwide epidemic, we want to educate our children on the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle so that they do not become a part of the epidemic!
